Breadfruit Curry with Yogurt

Breadfruit is a common vegetable used in South India, mainly in Mangalore side it is very popular. This vegetable tastes fresh, juicy and has got a lot of flavor in it. Breadfruit sambar and curry are usually prepared for marriage events.Tt is called as ”Puli Kajippu” in local language ‘Tulu’ and ”Majjige Huli” in ‘Kannada’, “Mor Kuzhambu” in Tamilnadu, ‘Pulissery’ in Kerala. The techniques and few ingredients change from place to place. The recipe which I am going to share here is pure Mangalorean yogurt curry, a traditional dish- must in functions and festivals.
