Magge tamboor

This is  an almost forgotten  and an authentic konkani dish.  For me this is a nostalgic one. This was  my bappama’s ( dad’s mom) one of the fav dishes of monsoon.  she loved to eat jackfruit seeds in any forms  like sannthani(boiled jack fruit seeds dried in sun light), fried ones or in curries etc..  I  don’t think todays’ generation like it or not.   I think it’s almost forgotten  now.

Magge  tamboor  its prepared from Mangalore cucumber (vellari in Malayalam)  with jack fruit seeds, garlic and red chilly tempering.  Its not a  spicy dish but its gives a little sweetness of jackfruit seeds and aroma of garlic. When I was a kid my bappama used to prepare this for me.    After I come back from school  I used to eat this like asoup. I was never tired of eating this Tamboor.

My friend gave some jack fruit seeds so I planned  to prepare this forgotten dish magge tamboor.
