Chakkakuru Mezhukkupuratti is an easy to make tasty simple preparation. Tastes similar to potato fry. Goes well with rice paired with curries like sambar, rasam or curd. I have shared Chakkakuru Thoran recipe which is basically a coconut based stir fry. People those who wants spicy or those who doesnot like coconut in cooking can make this tasty stir fry.

       I bought some seeds from my native palce when i visit there and prepared this yummy dish now. I am sure those who doesnot like jack seeds also start love this preparation. Spicy preparation with no coconut in it.
