In Kerala, Breadfruit is also known as kadachakka and this vegetable is very tasty. It will be available in almost all houses in Kerala. This is one of my favourite items. This tree is very big and it is looking very attractive. Mainly it will be available in the starting of rainy season and it will be available on markets at that time. Its price is less comparing other vegetables but taste is really good. It is the different version of jackfruit and we can make different dishes by using this. Usually we are making breadfruit masala curry, chips, bread fruit masala chips and beef with bread fruit. Bread fruit is there in my house so I am making different tasty dishes by using this. Here, I am showing how to make bread fruit stir fry. It is completely my mother's recipe and very easy recipe. Breadfruit is also have the stain like jackfruit so it will be little difficult to remove the peels but it doesn't matter because of its taste. It is super combination with hot rice for lunch. I used the same ingredients which we are usually using to make stir fry. I can say that this is completely a traditional recipe. It has the flavours of garlic, cumin seeds and coconut. It is very spicy-less dish so everyone can use this dish including children. It is very healthy vegetable so we can use this on daily basis. It will be very tasty if we use it with mango pickle.
