Though I live in a village area, I haven’t tasted Chakka thoran / chakka ularthiyath till yesterday. Yesterday, my grandma, came home and she prepared this awesome dish for us. After tasting it, I feel sad for not trying it so far. Friends, this is a native Kerala dish you should try at least once.

Here goes the lovely recipe from my grandmother for this traditional Kerala dish. She knows a lot of jackfruit recipes and I have shared many of them previously here in Cheenachatti.

  6. Saute, them till it becomes brownish.
