Kadachakka Chemeen Varutharachathe(Bread Fruit and Prawns)

"Smile is a curve which makes other curves straight" So with that sweet smile again I am coming back to this beautiful world of experts.

Months back I posted this recipe and due to some technical problems, I removed that from my blog.
Here again!

There is a big Bread fruit tree in my house(Kerala) and who ever see this would say "those who have Kadaplave(Bread fruit tree) in their compound will always in debt" .My mother always been scared about that.But my dad is totally different and he never support on such superstition.He loves that tree as it bears lot of good quality breadfruits every year and we used to give that to all our neighbours and relatives ,some times we sell that too.It's really tasty and my mother will make variety of dishes with that.
Here in UAE its very difficult to find fresh bread fruits. So definetly this one is also not fresh!
This varutharacha dish is also one type of theeyal ,but in this curry we never put tamarind.Its mild aroma and delicious taste is world renowed.


bread fruit 1 large peeled and cut into medium sized pieces
prawns 1/4 kg
green chilies 2nos
turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
dry red chilies 3nos
coriander 2 tbsp
shallots(small onion) 10 nos
garam masala 1/2 tsp
coconut grated 1 1/2 cup
jaggery a pinch
salt to taste

For seasoning

2 sprigs curry leaves
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
2,3 broken dry chilies
1 tbsp coconut oil


Cook the bread fruit and prawns together with green chilies,salt and a pinch of turmeric till soft.Meanwhile dry roast grated coconut and shallots until coconut turns light brown ,Add little coconut oil, coriander,dry chillies,remaining turmeric powder and garam masala and roast for few more minutes.keep aside to cool and make that into fine paste . Add the coconut paste into cooked bread fruit .Add a pinch of jaggery,mix well and boil for a while .Finally for seasoning..,Heat 1 tsp of coconut oil ,fry mustard seed ,curry leaves and broken dry chilies.Pour over the curry and serve hot.

You have got my favorite two in a single curry. Wish i could lay my hands on just one Kadachakka these days. I have looked, looked and looked around to find one. I heard some of the Jamaican stores carry fresh ones. Thank you for the recipe.
