BreadFruit Curd Curry is a gravy dish and prepared using Bread fruit.
Bread Fruit is known as Jee gujje in our native/Udupi. It belongs to Jack fruit family and this vegetable is used in curries and fried fritters.

One must remember to buy or use the fresh breadfruits which helps to cook faster and also retain good qualities in them.
Lets see the recipe Now :

Things Needed : 

Breadfruit : 1 (Small size)
Coconut : 1/2 Cup (Fresh)
Raw rice : 1 Teaspoon
Green chilly : 2
Salt : As required
Curd/Yogurt: 1 Small cup. (3 to 4 Tablespoons).
Jeera/Cumin Seeds : 1/2 Teaspoon
Mustard Seeds : 1/2 Teaspoon
Ingh : A pinch

Method :

1. Wash and remove the outer layer slowly and cut breadfruit into small pieces.
2. Put the cut pieces in a bowl of water for 5 minutes. Soak raw rice in water for 5 minutes.
3. Now put these breadfruit pieces, methi seeds, turmeric powder in a pan/pressure cooker.
4. Add 1/2 a cup of water and cook till they turn soft. (pressure cooker - 4 to 5 minutes will do).

5. Grate coconut and grind it with soaked rice. Add very little water for grinding.
6, Remove from the mixi jar and keep it aside. Wash and slit green chilly.
7. Add salt to breadfruit pieces and ground coconut. Add green chilly. Add required water.
8. Let this curry boil for 3 to 4 minutes. Mix it in between.

9. Shift the curry to a serving bowl. Let it cool.
10. Add a cup of fresh curd to the curry and mix it nicely.
11. Add jeera and mustard seasoning with curry leaves and ingh/Asafoetida.
12. Serve the curry with rice/chapati/idli/dosa or any other main dish.

Note :

Adding rice helps the curry to be thick. Thick curry taste best. You can add cashews/almonds/roasted channa instead of raw rice. Taste differ. Adding more coconut is optional. Use of ghee for seasoning is optional. Traditionally we do not add onions or garlic to this curry. This curry is prepared for festival or feast. Add a fresh curd to get the best taste. Do not add stale or savour curry. It may affect your health.
