Palamusu (Tender Jackfruit) Karamudhu | Jackfruit Thoran Recipe

Palamusu Karamudhu
Tender Jackfruit is a common vegetable in many cuisines. I thought it is common only in TamilNadu cuisines but after reading the article in Wikipedia, about this vegetable, I was amazed to find out how popular it is all around the world.

This Tender Jackfruit Curry is also called Palamusu in tamil.This curry is prepared for Ammavasya and Maasa pirappu(1 st day of the tamizh month).
Karamudu is nothing but curry or poriyal in Iyengar language also called karaimedu.Any curry or poriyal(vegetables) is called karamudu,like cabbage karamudu,vazhakkai,karamudu,sepankizhangu karamudu,etc…
Do you remember that last year , i had shared raw jackfruit stir fry and raw jackfruit sambar ? Recently i have posted the Jackfruit seed pakoda.All  the Jack Fruit seed recipes are unique and tastes equally good in their own way .

  • Once the palamusu becomes soft add a tbsp of karamudu powder and mix well.Palamusu is ready to serve.

My Note:

  • The measurement mentioned for making karamudu podi list is bit more ,you are going to add a tbsp only to the karamudu so the remaining powder you can reserve it in fridge.
  • Usually the palamusu will boiled and then grated but here i have grated and then boiled while making you can do by both the method.
