Jackfruit sukke


This is a typical Konkani dish. Sukke in konkani means dry. So as you are making this dish, try to add as little water as possible for best taste.

2 cups of jackfruit (best to use fresh cut)
1 cup grated coconut
5-6 red cyanne peppers
1 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp feugreek seeds (optional)
1 tsp tamarind
1 tsp mustard seeds
5-6 curry leaves

Coarse grind coriander seeds, tamrind, fenugreek seeds, coconut and red peppers. Meanwhile cut jackfruit into bite sized pieces and smash them using a mortar and pestle.

In a frying pan add oil and once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds quickly cover with a lid. Wait 30 seconds or till they  stop popping. Add curry leaves and repeat. Add the ground masala (spice mixture) to this and fry for a few minutes. Add jackfruit and add a table spoon of water to evenly coat the jackfruit with the masala. Cover and cook on medium-low heat for 10-15 mins. Uncover and continue stirring and  cooking for 5 more minutes on medium heat.

Serve with daal (preferably daalitoy; recipe coming soon!) and rice.

My condition was progressively deteriorating over the past 2 years. I’d been good at taking my medicine and exercising so knew I should have felt better. My arthritis and scleroderma were really affecting my quality of life. Increasing pain and fatigue were wearing me down.

Dr. Jenny and Ajoy came well-recommended so I got in touch. I completed a short questionnaire before my consultation. Covid meant it was all done over VC. They put me at ease, and it was like we were in the same room. They asked all the right medical and lifestyle questions without judgement. They devised a plan which was holistic, realistic and easy to follow. Their gentle and knowledgeable coaching kept me on track.

The resulting decrease in swelling and pain has given me a new lease of life in a few weeks. I feel so much better and look so much happier. I felt they were genuinely interested in my well-being. Happy to highly recommend them.
