A kuzhambu made with palakottai (jackfruit seed), sambar powder and tamarind.


  • Thuvar dhal – Half cup

  • Tamarind – small lemon size

  • Sambar powder – 1 tablespoon

  • Turmeric powder – ¼ teaspoon

  • Palakottai – 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


  • Wash thuvar dhal, add two cups of water along with a pinch of turmeric powder and pressure cook till soft.
  • Soak tamarind in water and squeeze out the juice. Add sambar powder, turmeric powder and salt. Keep aside.
  • Cut the palakottai (jack fruit seed) 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.
  • Add the palakottai along with two cups of water in a pressure cooker and cook for two whistles. Cool it and drain the excess water.
  • Add the cooked pala kottai to the tamarind juice and allow to boil.
  • Now add the cooked thuvar dhal mashed well.
  • In a kadai add 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.
