Halasina Sole Palya/Raw Jackfruit subji

If you visit rural south  canara during summer season , no women will be free. All will be busy in preserving food items for coming monsoon.They preserve jack fruit(neeru sole), mango(neeru mavu) in salt water which can be used entire year. They also prepare halasina happa, mavina mamabala , sandige , midi uppina kayi etc during summer as its called season of mango and jack fruit.

Monsoon will  be terrible as it will continuously raining for 3-2 day and night non stop. So vegetables supply will less.during that time stored jack fruit or mango will be used in samabar, palya to componsiate.

I used to get containers of both salted jack fruit and mango from my Mom in law. but after moving here I was really missing it. But last week when we had been to Indian grocery ,H was able to find frozen raw jack fruit. Immeditely I pulled it to my cart. Lots of food can be prepared with it. I tried play from it and it came out well.Here is the recipe for it.

You Need To Have:
10-12 sole / Raw Jackfruit
1/4 cup grated Coconut
1-2 tsp Oil
1 tsp black gram seeds
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
 4-5 curry Leaves
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilly powder


Uppu sole will be very salty. So take out required amount of sole from container and put it under running water and wash it for many times until salt content goes off completely.chop them length wise and keep it a aside.

Heat oil in a  thick bottomed pan and add mustard seeds. once they start  spluttering add curry  leaves,blackgram seeds fry until they turn color.Add chopped uppu sole to it and fry for 1 min on high flame. Then close the lid and cook it on low flame for 6-7 mins. add chilli powder and coconut to it and fry for another 1 min.

turn off the flame and serve hot with rice.
