Deevi Halasu Podi/Breadfruit Fritters

Breadfruit belongs to mulberry family, mainly found in South Asian coastal region. Its commonly called as breadfruit in English, divi halasu in Kannada and jeegujje in Tulu language. Breadfruit can be prepared into curry, stir fry, sambar, yogurt curry and more. Pakoda is one simple recipe which can be prepared for evening snacks. When I was a kid I believed that breadfruit and jack fruit are somehow related to one another, as they look somewhat similar 🙂
