Wash and peel breadfruit skin. Chop it into thin vertical pieces as shown below. Keep it in water to avoid discoloration of the veggie.
Heat a pan/kadai adding all seasoning ingredients in the order mentioned(oil, mustard seeds, split black gram and curry leaves). When the mustard seeds splutter and split black gram turns to brown add the chopped vegetables. Add salt, jaggery and little water. Saute for a while and let it cook till soft.
Meanwhile grind coconut, cumin seeds, curry leaves and red chillies without adding water. This is the masala for breadfruit palya/stir fry.
Add the ground masala to cooked veggie and saute for few minutes in low flame.
Now Breadfruit palya/stir fry is ready to be served with rice/chapati.
Do not add too much water to cook breadfruit pieces. Breadfruit gets cooked immediately in little water, it will become mushy otherwise.
For more spiciness you can add slit green chillies too while cooking.
