Breadfruit Fritters or Breadfruit Pakodas or Neer Phanas Bhaji or Jeev Kadgi Bajo is an ideal dish during monsoons.

Jeev Kadgi

The botanical name of breadfruit is Artocarpus altilis. It belongs to the jackfruit family. Mostly found in tropical regions around the world, Breadfruit can be used to prepare many delicacies mostly savoury. It is normally available during monsoons.

The recipe that I am going to share today is that of Breadfruit Pakodas| Neer Phanas Bhaji| Jeev Kadgi Bajo. It is a very simple but delicious dish. I am sure once you eat it, you will definitely want to cook more till the end of the season.

I always eagerly waited for the breadfruit season right since my childhood days. Any dish especially fritters would we devoured within a few minutes. More was always less. I could go on eating even if my stomach was full. But now ever since the health bug bit me, I have drastically reduced the quantity I eat but I still love to cook it. The sheer smell of the frying of the breadfruit pakodas is sheer bliss.

Firstly, cut the breadfruit after removing its skin. The skin is edible so do not throw it away. I will share recipes made from breadfruit skin.

Jeev Kadgi

Prepare the batter by taking 2 cups of Bengal gram flour (besan), 1 tsp red chilli (lal mirch) powder, 1/2  tsp asafoetida (hing), water to make a thick batter and salt as per taste.

Bengal Gram flour

Heat cooking oil (tel) in a kadhai (wok).

Garam Tel

Once it’s hot, dip the breadfruit pieces in the batter and put it in the cooking oil (tel).

After a minute flip the pakodas and once they are completely cooked, serve them piping hot. These Pakodas can be relished with chutney or ketchup or as I love it, without any accompaniments.

Steps

1
Done

Step 1

Cut the breadfruit in to pieces of desired thickness. I like it thick so I have made thick slices. If you like you can also make thin slices. Apply cooking oil (tel) to the knife before cutting it as it becomes easier to cut it.

Step 2

Do not discard the skin, it is completely edible and healthy. I will share recipes in which you can use the breadfruit skin.

Done

Step 3

Prepare the batter for the pakodas by taking 2 cups besan, 1 tsp red chilli (lal mirch) powder, 1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) and 1/2 tsp asafoetida (hing). Hing is added so that it will not lead to gas formation in the stomach. Add 1/2 cup water (paani) to make a thick batter. In case you like thin batter for your pakodas, you can make it thin too. It depends on once's taste and preferences.
