Chakkakkuru/Jackfruit Seed and Kaya Upperi

This is a dish made out of ingredients easily available in home, hence these are free from chemicals and highly injurious preservatives.We all love to eat the yummy and exotic fruit,,the jack fruit but most of us throw away the seeds without realizing the proteins and nutrients packed in it.It is fiber rich seed containing carbohydrates. The potassium content in the seed helps to lower the blood pressure level.This seed helps in preventing cancer, ulcer, constipation and aging. It is a good food to fight against obesity as well. So,I am sure this is a dish worth trying.

Here I used raw banana with jack fruit seed,you can choose drumstick,bitter gourd,snake gourd(padavalanga) etc.
