Jackfruit Seed Dal with Drumstick

For the first time I saw jackfruit seeds at a local super market and I was thrilled, couldn't wait to get home to make this amazing coconut based dal adding the jackfruit seeds, using drumsticks for this dal is up to your liking but I insist you must as it goes together beautifully.
Please temper the dal only in ghee or else it is not worth the effort guys.
There are plenty of different ways you can prepare this dal, today I am showing you a less spicy version for jackfruit seed dal.
 For those who do not know much about cooking with jackfruit seeds this can be a start. Do give it a try, it tastes wonderful.
1 cup cooked moong dal (add turmeric while cooking )
Few jackfruit seeds add more or less to your liking
(peel the skin and cut in half, pressure cook for 1 whistle or boil adding turmeric and salt)
Drumstick boiled with salt and turmeric
1 tbs coconut powder
Salt to taste
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin
a pinch of fennel seed powder for aroma
few curry leaf
ginger , green chili and garlic crushed (add to taste)

While boiling the jackfruit seeds make sure they retain their shape and not get mushy, in the same pan add the drumstick too, the drumstick also needs to retain their shape so do not overcook it.

Add the cooked dal and boil, adjust the water and add salt, then add in the coconut powder diluted in some water. Cover and cook for 2 min.

Now for the tempering add ghee to a pan and add the mustard seeds followed by the rest of the tempering ingredients.

Check for salt and adjust to taste. Now your done !

Serve this wonderful jackfruit seed dal with fish fry on the side and enjoy.
