Kadachakka Thoran Recipe| Cheema Chakka (Breadfuit Thoran)| Onam Sadya Recipe

I am posting some of the Onam sadya recipes this week. Last time when my mom in law came home, she brought kadachakka from our native. Though I have kadachakka theeyal recipe in hand, I like the way my mom in law makes this thoran. This is one of her staple recipes and I got the recipe from her. It turned out really yum and here we go for the recipe:

Kadachakka(Breadfruit) - 1/2 
Salt - as required 
To grind: 
Coconut - 1/2 cup 
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp 
Garlic - 3 cloves 
Chilli Powder - 1 tsp 
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp 
To temper: 
Oil - 1 tsp 
Mustard - 1 tsp 
Curry leaves - few

1. Cut the kadachakka into 2 equal halfs. Peel the skin and remove the centre portion. Then chop it into small pieces.
2. Grind the items under 'To Grind' to a coarse mixture by adding little water. In a pan add some oil and allow the mustard seeds, curry leaves to crackle. Then add the ground mixture and cook till the raw smell leaves.
3. Then add the chopped bread fruit and mix well. Sprinkle required salt at this stage. Add little water, cook till it is tender and soft. It takes approximately 5 to 7 minutes.
The yummy thoran goes well with rice and any curry of your choice.

Points to remember:
  • The kadachakka cooks very fast, hence add very little water while cooking. 
  • Don't overcook and mash the kadachakka.
Warm Regards,
