Bread Fruit is an tropical fruit harvested and used for cooking before ripening. This fruit looks similar to Jack Fruit because it belongs to the same family. But tastes entirely different. When you cook this bread fruit it becomes so soft similar potato. Yummy side dish prepared without much effort.

       Sure it is different veggie from the regular veggies like carrot, beans, potato..etc.
I have already shared Kadachakka Varutharacha Curry which tastes similar to non veg preparations. This is another easy to make preparation. Try this at home and send the feedback.
