We have a breadfruit tree in our garden and this is breadfruit season. It is one of my daughterâ€™s favorite vegetables. Read more about breadfruit here (this post also has links to the other dishes made with this). This talasani is one of the very simple dishes made with this. Talasanis taste great when they are made quite spicy. We serve it as a side dish with rice.
4 cups breadfruit pieces
1 tea spn chilli powder
1/2 tea spn mustard seeds
A pinch asafoetida
4-5 curry leaves
Cut the breadfruit into two pieces(like shown in picture below). Discard the outer green layer and white portion in the center(which is clearly visible).
Cut the middle portion (between the green outer layer and white in the center) into pieces.
Put the pieces in water for sometime.
Heat oil and add mustard seeds. When they start popping, add curry leaves, asafoetida. Then add breadfruit pieces, chilli powder, salt. Cover and cook on a low heat till done.
Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 30mins
