Jackfruit – Chickpeas Sidedish (Chakko Chane Randayi / Ghashi)

chakko chane ghashi

We have few jackfruit trees in our garden. During the season, we make many dishes from the raw fruit. This is one such dish which happens to be very popular among Konkanis. Some call it Chakko chane ghashi, we call it chakko chane randayi (In our Konkani, randayi is any side dish which is watery in consistency).

At my home, we usually like to make jackfruit-dal randayi which gets its aroma from teppal. Chakko-chane randayi is a nice variety with simple ingredients that are easily available everywhere.

Ingredients:
2 cups raw jackfruit pieces
1 cup chana (chickpeas) soaked overnight
1 cup coconut
4 – 5 red chillies
1/2 tea spn fenugreek seeds
2-3 kokum pieces or use tamarind
Salt
Oil
1 tea spn mustard seeds
5-6 curry leaves
6-7 drumstick(maskasangi/mashinga sangi) pieces (optional )

Method:
Cook chana and jackfruit pieces separately in a pressure cooker. Cook drumstick (if using).
Heat oil and fry fenugreek seeds. Grind them with coconut, red chillies.
Add the masala to the chana jackfruit mixture and cook. Add kokum and salt.
Cook for about 4-5 minutes.
Heat oil and add mustard. After they start popping, add curry leaves. Add it to the randayi and serve with rice or chapati.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 30mins

being a working woman, i do not get time to try such typical south indian style receipes.. the cleaning part of raw jackfruit itself is so tedious that i would never think of preparing such dishes, but i tried this receipe simple and easy and very tasty. thank you.

My sister introduced me to your website. I enjoy visiting it. Your recipes are easy to follow and your pictures add a whole other dimension. I hope to try out your recipe for Chakko Chane Ghashi. I wanted to say that I occasionally find frozen diced jackfruit in the freezer section of my local Apna Bazaar in Newark, Delaware. This brings back childhood memories of watching the womenfolk in my family sitting around chatting, cleaning and cutting jackfruit that grew on the tall trees around my grandparents’s place in South Kanara…
