Chakka aviyal recipe, Jackfruit aviyal

Chakka aviyal/ Jackfruit aviyal is a simple, quick and delicious coconut based dish popular in Kerala. Unlike the regular aviyal this recipe includes no curd/ yogurt or mixed veggies but tastes truly delicious and is often served alongside rice, sambar and fish curry. Jackfruit season is back and as much as I love eating it as fruit,I  love to cook dishes too with it as I grew up in Dubai, so followed a simple yet delicious recipe like my aunt where the aviyal calls for unripe jackfruit alone. But traditionally they add jackfruit seeds and raw mango as well which enhances the taste of this dish. Also use only unripe jackfruit only and only coconut oil as it tastes best.
