Kadachakka Erachi Curry (breadfruit Cooked With Beef)
Yet another classic from mom's side of the family. I love breadfruit maybe because it is rare and not available all throughout the year. Though it is called breadfruit it is like a small jack fruit and hence in Malayalam we call it kadachakka. Chakka means jack fruit in Malayalam. Mom would add roasted coconut paste to this curry but I was in no mood to grate coconut so I skipped this step and it tasted equally good. I think with meat and vegetables cooked together it is always the flavor of the meat that makes the vegetable that is paired taste awesome. And with breadfruit its sweet flavor gets even better when cooked in the fat of meat. Non-beef eaters can opt for mutton.
