Breadfruit/Kadachakka Puzhukku

Breadfruit/Kadachakka Puzhukku

Kadachakka Puzhukku is cooked and mashed breadfruit with coconut and spices. This recipe is very similar to the kappa/tapioca puzhukku. In my home town, jack fruit and bread fruit are available seasonally. Sometimes they are made like tapioca and served along with rice and fish curry. It is a yummy combo. Try this, you will surely love it.

Bread fruit/kadachakka- 1/2 kg
Turmeric- 1/2 tsp
Grated coconut- 1 cup
Cumin- 1/2 tsp
Garlic-2 pods
Green Chilly- 4-5
Curry leaves-  3-4
Salt to taste

For Tempering
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Whole red chilly- 1
Curry leaves- a few
Coconut oil- 2 tsp

Peel the skin off the bread fruit and cut into cubes. Transfer this into a heavy bottom vessel. Add salt  turmeric powder and 2 cups of water. Cook till it is soft and mash with the back of a spoon.

Make a course paste of coconut and cumin.Crush chilly,garlic shallot and curry leaves and mix to the paste.

Add this coconut mixture into the cooked mashed bread fruit and mix evenly. Let it cook for another one or two minutes so that the raw flavor of the coconut mixture disappears and switch off the flame.

Heat coconut oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and when it splutter add red chilies and curry leaves. Pour this over the mashed curry and give one good mix. Serve with spicy fish curry.

Try it,
Hope you will all enjoy!
