I love this easy to make dry curry. Don’t try to make it in less oil. Mango and raw jackfruit should be fried well. So use 3 to 4 tablespoon. Better to use mustard oil. You can use any oil but mustard oil will give better taste. I have used mustard powder, you can also use mustard seeds. Soak the seeds in little water and grind into a fine paste. Boil the jackfruit with salt and turmeric till fork tender. Don’t make jackfruit mushy.
