Bread Fruit Thoran | Kadachakka(Cheema chakka )Thoran

Bread fruit /Kadachakka closely relates to jackfruit and belongs to the mulberry family.Its also a good source of vit C ,excellent source of potassium and copper loaded with lots of calories and more of fiber.It helps in reducing cholesterol and acts as a bulk laxative.It.Here,its difficult to find bread fruit but at times its available in the korean markets.Earlier I had posted the kadachakka curry/Bread fruit curry sometime back,this is another healthy version with it too,a simple stir fry !!

bread fruit/kadachakka 1/2
shallots 8-10

garama masala 1/2 tsp
salt
oil 2tsp
curry leaves 1-2 sprigs


Method
-Wash & peel the bread fruit removing the tough skin.Wash again,cut in small cubes.Add water(1 cup) in a pan with salt and turmeric powder,cook until tender & soft(takes about 20-25 mins) OR pressure cook the bread fruit with salt,water for 2 whistles.
-Heat oil in a non stick pan or kadai(wok),splutter mustard seeds.Add in the shallots and garlic cloves along with green chillies.Saute until shallots are translucent.Add 1/4 tsp turmeric powder & garam masala.
