1 tsp Mustard seeds  |  ಸಾಸಿವೆ
1 - 2 broken Red Chillies  |  ಕೆಂಪು ಒಣ ಮೆಣಸಿನ ತುಂಡು

Apply little oil on your hands and cut the jackfruit into two halves. Take one half and cut it into medium sized long pieces and remove the inner part of it as shown in the picture below.

Separate the jackfruits as shown in the picture below.

Cut each jackfruit into 4-5 long pieces as shown in the picture below.

Put them in water for about 10-15 mins.

Remove all unwanted things, separate the seeds and jackfruit as shown in the picture below.

Put the jackfruit seeds in a pressure cooker container. Add little amount of salt, water and pressure cook.(1-2 whistles)

Put cleaned jackfruit pieces in a thick bottomed vessel/pan. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder, salt, jaggery, water (Around 1.5 cups) and cook them well by covering a lid. 

Once it is cooked, add cooked jackfruit seeds and mix them well. 

Once the water content is almost dried, add grated coconut and keep the palya in low flame for about 4-5 mins.

Put black gram seeds, mustard seeds, 1-2 red chilly pieces and oil in a pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and add it to palya. Mix well before serving. It goes well with Rice, Chapathis.

Tips (ಸಲಹೆ):
 * Jackfruit can be refrigerated for abt 3-4 hrs before cutting to reduce the wax in it.
 * Applying little oil to hands before cutting will reduce sticking of wax
 * ಹೆಚ್ಚುವ ಮೊದಲು ಹಲಸಿನಕಾಯಿಯನ್ನು ಫ್ರಿಡ್ಜ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಇಟ್ಟರೆ (3-4 ಗಂಟೆ) ಮೇಣ ಕಡಿಮೆ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ
 * ಹೆಚ್ಚುವ ಮೊದಲು ಕೈಗೆ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಹಚ್ಚುವುದರಿಂದ ಮೇಣ ಕೈಗೆ ಅಷ್ಟು ಅಂಟಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದಿಲ್ಲ
