Bread fruit, which in Kannada is generally known as Beru halasu or Deevi halasu. It is one of the commonly used vegetables in Malnad areas. Sambar (Curry) prepared from this veggie tastes delicious. We can also prepare tasty chips, paapads, bhajjis and podis using Bread fruit. I have tasted varieties of Bread fruit dishes since childhood, but Chakke Paladya using this veggie was new to me. My mom prepared this particular curry sometime back and I liked it a lot. So, here is the recipe of Bread Fruit Chakke Paladya for you..

Bread fruit - 1/2 cut

Seasoning: 1 tsp oil, 3/4 tsp mustard seeds, pinch of asafoetida, 1 strand of curry leaves.
