Sailboat Galley – Breadfruit Curry

A ripe breadfruit curry is soft to the touch with a sweet, aromatic fragrance. Ripe fruit is perfect for cakes, pies, cookies, energy bars, and other sweet treats. Ripe breadfruit is best used right away, although it can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days before use or stored in the freezer for later use.

Breadfruit Curry is an excellent source of proteins, essential amino acids, vitamins C, B1, B5, and minerals. These nutrients help strengthen the immune system by reducing the chances of infections. They also improve skin and hair and aid in bone growth.

Breadfruit curry or Del curry is a popular Sri Lankan dish that most people love to taste. Usually, breadfruit curry is served with plain rice.

You can eat it baked, fried, steamed, and buttered.

How to prepare it:

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan or stockpot using medium-high heat.
  • Add garlic, ginger, onion, and pepper to oil and let cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the breadfruit and let it cook for a few minutes, stirring until most of the pieces are browned.
  • Pour in coconut milk, spices, and water. Bring to a boil.
  • Turn the heat down, cover, and let simmer for 20-30 minutes until the breadfruit is soft when poked with a fork. It should feel like a cooked potato. If your sauce gets too thick, add more water and stir.
  • Serve with chapati or rice.
