Chakka Aviyal is a Kerala’s special type of Aviyal (Avial) made with raw Jackfruit, Jackfruit seeds, Drumstick and Raw Mango as main vegetables. All part of Jackfruit is edible except the outside greenish thorns. So we can include all parts of of Jackfruit for this Aviyal according to the the personal choice.

I’m adding raw mangoes for the sourness of the Aviyal and it’s the best choice for Chakka Aviyal but still we can user Tomato/ Curd for the sourness.

Best Combination

  1. Kerala Rice + Pulissery/ Moru Curry (Kerala style Butter milk curry) + Kottayam Style Fish Curry – Kottayam style fish curry | Kerala style fish curry | Meen mulakittathu | Meen vevichathu | Meen curry recipe.


  1. Cook Jackfruit seeds first as it need more cooking time than other ingredients.
  2. Drizzling coconut oil at the end of the cooking makes Kerala Aviyal yummy and authentic.
  3. Add raw mango pieces according to the sourness you want.
