Jackfruit is my favourite, but never tried that with sambhar. The one that you have made is looking just perfect to go with Idli or dosa or may be just have like soup. OH! I love it...

Manjula said...

I love jackfruit raw and ripe. I guess its season for jackfruits now back in Dakshina Kannada. I miss the whole fun of slicing and peeling the messy gooey jackfruits :(

Jackfruit sambar is something I have never tried. I have already soaked the green grams for soaking :)

Dr. Soumya Bhat said...
