Palakkai (Baby Jackfruit) Podimas

Palakkai_Baby_Jackfruit_ Podimas_1 Baby jackfruit tastes nice when cooked with spices. Tender or young or baby jackfruit is called as Palakkai in Tamil and as Katahal in Hindi.

Here I have prepared Palakkai (Baby Jackfruit) Podimas. It is a simple dish to prepare. With all freshly added spices this tastes different and nice. Cleaning and cutting baby jackfruit is a little messy process.
