JACKFRUIT AND SPLIT BLACK GRAM CURRY
Hello and welcome friends once again to my cooking corner. As summer has approached and we can start feeling the heat already, we want to eat healthy and seasonal fruits and veggies more than any other thing. One can find the freshness of taste in these vegetables more than in the other ones like cauliflower, beans, cabbage etc which were liked more in the winter period. Today I decided to make this dish of Jackfruit with Split Black Gram. I have made similar recipes in my earlier blogs using split black gram but with other ingredients like fish. You can make similar recipes of this lentil, adding any other vegetable that you like. And today’s dish of mine is healthy, tasty and easy on time too needing just your regular set of ingredients. So let’s start making this dish—-

Wash, cut and blanch the jackfruit and boil the Split Black Gram till done.
