Jackfruit Seeds Sambar Recipe

Jackfruit seeds sambar recipe


Jackfruit is originally from south India. This fruit comes with hard skin and has a unique way of cutting it. Fruits and seeds will be layered inside and need skillful hands to cut the fruit tactfully.

Inside it will be sticky hence apply oil to your hands before cutting the fruit. Otherwise, the sticky part will be difficult to wash away.

Jackfruit is the best thing that happened to vegetarians. The sweetness of this fruit makes everyone to drool over it. And what about that nice aroma? even after 2 days we can smell the flavor of Jackfruit in house.

Today in this post I’m going to share Jackfruit seeds sambar recipe.Β Nice blend of boiled Jackfruit seeds and cooking it along with masala powders gives a delightful taste.


Here is the Jackfruit seeds sambar recipe;




Jackfruit Seeds – 10 – 15

Chilli Powder – 1 tablespoon

Sambar Powder – 2 tablespoon

Tamarind – half lemon sized

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tablespoon

Cumin seeds- 1/2 tablespoon

Turmeric – 1/2 tablespoon

Salt – As per the taste

Garlic – 2-3 cloves

Dry Red Chilli – 1

Curry leaves – 8-10

Grated Coconut – 2 tablespoon


Steps to prepare Jackfruit Seeds Sambar;


  • Soak Tamarind in medium hot water. This makes it leave juice until we prepare the rest of the stuff.


  • Keep Jackfruit seeds in pressure cook and whistle 5-6 times. They take more time to cook completely hence make sure they are well cooked. If you are using Instant Pot then set it on Pressure cook for 5 minutes.


  • Once the pressure is released take the boiled seeds out and drain the water. The hard skin of the seeds will come out automatically if they are cooked perfectly.


  • Remove the hard skin from all the seeds.

  • Bled these seeds along with garlic, Dry red chili, and salt. Don’t add too much water while grinding. Add a little amount of water in intervals to finely blend the seeds.

  • Turn it off immediately.


This sambar tastes heavenly along with hot rice. Nice topping of ghee can double the taste.

    Lot of similarities are there in the traditional food of Karnataka and my natuve Konkan. During the summers we seldom purchase any vegetables at our native. Instead our breakfast lunch and dinner consists all things mango and jackfruit aka fanas. I have had several dishes of Athul (jackfruit seed) but now I got to know another one. I have got a jackfruit from a friend last week and shall try this recipe soon.

    1. Hackytips says:

      I can imagine. And every part of the fruit will be used for one or another type of recipe. We are blessed isn’t it? πŸ™‚

  16. wow. this is really interesting but very new recipe.
