Pala Kottai (Jack fruit seeds) Kuzhambu


  • Thuvar dhal – Half cup
  • Tamarind – small lemon size
  • Sambar powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ teaspoon
  • Pala Kottai – 10 Nos
  • Salt – 1 teaspoon
  • For seasoning
  • 2 teaspoon oil
  • Half teaspoon mustard
  • A pinch of asafetida
  • Few curry leaves
  • Sambar onion – 4 or 5


  1. Wash thuvar dhal and add two cups of water along with a pinch of turmeric powder and pressure cook till soft.
  2. Soak tamarind in water and squeeze out the juice. Add sambar powder, turmeric powder and salt. Keep aside.
  3. Cut the pala kottai into two pieces and remove the outer white skin. If you fry the cut palakottai in a dry kadai for few minutes, you can easily remove the skin. You need not remove the pink skin.
  4. Put the palakottai along with two cups of water in a pressure cooker and cook for two whistles. Cool it and drain the excess water.
  5. Add the cooked pala kottai to the tamarind juice and allow to boil. Now add the cooked thuvar dhal mashed well. In a kadai put the oil and when it is hot add the mustard. When it pops up, add cut onions, curry leaves and fry for a while. Add this to the sambar. Mix well. Remove from stove.
