Breadfruit thoran

Thoran or poriyal made from sheemachakka or kadachakka – the breadfruit.

To make this thoran, use a breadfruit that has not become completely ripe. Skin and chop into very small pieces. Pour coconut oil into a wok, splutter some mustard seeds and then add the pieces of breadfruit along with a bit of salt. Cover and cook without water. When it is half done, add in a paste of a little water mixed with chilli, coriander, turmeric and garam masala powders. Cover and cook. Once it is completely done, add some more oil, saute well and then remove from the fire.
