Red lentil cooked with tomato and jackfruit seeds ( masoor dalot kothal guti diya)


      Jackfruit is a tropical fruit, found in summer season only. It is widely found and cultivated in Assam. There is a huge demand of jackfruit in Assam. The fruit is unique and very large in size compared to the other summer seasoned fruits. Jackfruit is also recognized for its fruity flavour of its bulbs that can be smelled from a distance.  The fruit is very sweet in taste and has many health benefits as is very rich in minerals and vitamins. The jaclfruit tree is a very huge one and each tree can bear as many as 100-200 large fruit.
   
  Like the fruit, jackfruit seeds are also edible and very rich in protein and minerals. Many different recipies can be prepared from jackfruit seeds. We can boil, fry or roast jackfruit seeds. We can add jackfruit seeds in dal, soup and sabji. We can also make cutlets from jackfruit seeds. Jackfruit seeds has a wide use in Assamese cuisine. 

This simple lentil recipe I often cook during summer season as because it is very easy to prepare.  We serve this lentil recipe with steamed rice but you can also serve it as a soup.

Bhoot Jolokia Pickle / Ghost Chilli Pickle

Bhoot jolokia/Bhut jolokia (ভোট জলকীয়া) or Ghost chilli is one of the hottest chilli on earth cultivated basically in Assam and some other parts of northeast India. The bhoot jolokias are two or three inches long and starts out green in colour.  It turns red only when ripened.  This ripened ghost chilli in the first bite gives an intense sweet chilli flavor.  The heat doesn't kick at the beginning. As you started chewing it, the heat kicks in and your mouth started burning together starts sweating and watery eyes.

Don't touch ghost chilli with bare hands after cutting.  But as we Assamese people do not use spoon and fork and eat our meal with our fingers, we have the practice of touching this red hot chili with our bare hands.

Instant Green Chilli Pickle in Mustard Recipe

Hey!  I'm back again with another Green chilli pickle. Hope you are not bored with my continuous pickle recipes. Summer is meant for pickling and I have still many pickles to made in my mind. Hope you liked my previous green chilli pickle recipe. Today I'm going to share an instant green chilli pickle recipe which you can serve to your guests instantly after making. This green chilli pickle is very easy to prepare. The taste of this pickle is hot and sour.  This is similar to the chilli chutney that is usually served in marriage parties. I'm using medium hot Indian variety of  green chillies for making this Instant pickle. Green chillies are dipped into the mustard seeds' paste and the use of vinegar makes the pickle sour to taste. You can serve this pickle with rice or roti (Indian bread)  as a side dish,  but I like to have this pickle with fritters (pakoras) too.
