    1. Clean the shutki pieces with water (not boiling water) and set aside.
    2. Peel the skin of the jack fruit seeds, cut into thin slices and set aside.
    3. Heat oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic slices until the scent of onions and garlic comes out.
    4. Sprinkle the turmeric powder and stir for a bit. Add the shutki pieces and continue to stir so that the ingredients do not burn or stick to the bottom of the pan.
    5. Add the sliced jack fruit seed and stir it with the ingredients already in the pan. Pour in 1/2 cup of water.
    6. When bubbles start to form, sprinkle the dry red chilli powder and stir it in.
    7. Lower the heat and allow the seeds to cook until seeds become soft and water dries up to form gravy. By now, the oil should start simmering on top.
