I hope you liked my Cheema chakka thoran, here comes another recipe from it. We had this curry on Onam, and it just tasted awesome as it really resembles the taste of Kerala, as this has a blend of coconut and all the spices, that too when served with the Kerala rice. I know I am bit late in posting this recipe, but I was little busy with our Onam activities. The breadfruit is not so tasty if you cook in any other ways, as it taste good only with this 2 recipes.

If you’re desperate in tasting an authentic kerala vegetarian dish, this would be the right choice. Its little tedious but if you cook with the rite coconut measures, you will win the taste. As I have already mentioned in cheema chakka thoran, you just to need to put the chakka pieces into water immediately after you cut it, else it may get darken and you will not get the rite taste.

  • Bread fruit pieces- half Cup
  • Coconut Shredded- ½ Cup
  • Small Onions- Half Cup
  • Coconut Thick Milk(1st Milk)- ½ Cup
  • Coconut Thin Milk(2nd Milk)- ½ Cup
  • Cumin Seeds- ½ Tspn
  • Chili Powder- 1 Tspn
  • Coriander Powder-1 Tspn
  • Turmeric Powder-1/4 Tspn
  • Curry Leaves- Few
  • Coconut Oil- 2 Tspn
  • Salt- to Taste
  • Dry Red Chilies- 3 nos

  • In a pan, add the breadfruit pieces and water with little salt and turmeric powder and cook it covered until the breadfruit is baked well.
  • In a separate pan, add shredded coconut and sauté well, when it becomes little oily, add the small onion few and add all the powders in the ingredients and sauté
  • well. After it turns golden brown, set it cool and grind it to fine paste.
  • Add the grounded coconut paste to the cooked breadfruit and mix well.
  • Allow it to boil for a minute, now add the coconut 2nd milk and stir well.
  • Let it boil until it becomes thick, now add the coconut 1st milk and mix again.
  • Boil until everything becomes thick and masala smell goes from it.
  • In a separate pan, add coconut oil, curry leaves and dry chilies and add all these in to the curry cooked.

"Do not over roast the coconut as it may give a bitter taste if you do so.
You can add more coconut milk as per your need for the gravy.
Donot bake the breadfruit for long time, as it doesn’t take much time to cook."
