    Keep stirring, add salt and sugar to taste.

  6. Keep braising the jackfruit on medium heat till the masala leaves oil from the sides.

  7. Once that stage is reached, lower the heat and add the curd in batches (not all at the same time).

    Mix it well, and keep braising it.

  8. Add enough water to just cover the jackfruits.

  9. Lower the flame, close the pressure cooker and steam cook the jackfruits till itbecomes tender.

    Check if the jackfruit is tender enough, if not then add some more water and cook it till done.
