Monkey Jack Powder (Unde Huli Hudi) | ಉಂಡೆ (ಕೆತ್ತೆ, ಚೆಂಡು) ಹುಳಿ ಹುಡಿ | An alternative for Tamarind

Tangy powder, an alternative to Tamarind

Ingredients (ಬೇಕಾಗುವ ಪದಾರ್ಥಗಳು):
Monkey Jack (Artocarpus Lacucha, Unde (Kette, Chendu) Huli)  |  ಉಂಡೆ (ಕೆತ್ತೆ, ಚೆಂಡು) ಹುಳಿ 

Recipe (ಮಾಡುವ ವಿಧಾನ):
Clean and wipe the Monkey Jack using a clean cotton cloth or wash it in water.

Remove the inner part of Monkey Jack and cut them into medium sized thin pieces as shown in the picture below.

Sun dry the pieces for about 8-10 days. Remove the seeds as shown in the picture below.

Put this in a mixer and grind it to smooth powder as shown in the picture below. Store them in an airtight container. This can be used as a replacement for tamarind while making any curries/chutneys. This powder enhances the taste of some of the curries like Brinjal/Eggplant Playa.

Tips (ಸಲಹೆ): 
 * If you remove the seeds, the powder will have longer shelf life 
 * If you don't remove the innermost part of the Monkey Jack, it will be difficult to make the powder as it becomes very hard after drying
 * ಉಂಡೆ ಹುಳಿಯ ಬೀಜವನ್ನು ತೆಗೆದು ಹುಡಿ ಮಾಡಿದರೆ, ಹುಡಿಯನ್ನು ಹಾಗೆ ಹೊರಗಡೆ ಇಟ್ಟರೂ ಅಷ್ಟು ಬೇಗನೆ ಹಾಳಾಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲ
 * ಉಂಡೆ ಹುಳಿಯ ನಡುವಿನ ಗೂಂಜಿನ ಭಾಗವನ್ನು ತೆಗೆಯದಿದ್ದರೆ ಹುಡಿ ಮಾಡಲು ಕಷ್ಟವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ
