Neer funsachi kapa/ Phodi

Breadfruit rava fry or let's just call it neer funsachi kapa/phodi as we call it in Goa. Also called jeev kadgi.

Tedious to cut but worth the effort. Great to snack on and it's never enough. Tiny looking fruit can actually serve many. This is part of our traditional cuisine in Konkan region.

The complicated explanation-

It is a species of big flowering tree in the mulberry and jackfruit family believed to be a domesticated descendant of Artocarpus camasi originating in New Guinea, the Maluku Islands and Philippines - source - Wikipedia


1 raw breadfruit ( easily available in Mangalore stores)

1 cup semolina

1 tbsp chili powder

1 tbsp coriander powder

Salt to taste

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/4 cup tamarind pulp



  • Apply some oil on the knife before you start cutting the fruit

  • Peel the skin and cut it into two parts vertically

  • Remove the centre portion, cut the fruit horizontally now

  • Make slices of about half cm thickness and soak it in salt water for 15 to 20min

  • Now take out the water and add tamarind pulp, chili, coriander and turmeric powder. Mix it well and leave it for another 10min to marinate

  • Take semolina, add salt and mix it

  • Heat tawa, drizzle oil. Now deep each slice in semolina and coat it well all around and place it on tawa. Place as many as you can. Drizzle oil around. You will need good amount of oil as this shallow fry.

  • Cover it and let it fry on medium heat. Turn the slices and let it fry on the other side for sometime.

  • To check if it is cooked, you may slide a knife slowly into the slice. If it gets through easily it cooked

Serve hot with rice and dal or goan curry as a side dish or you can just snack on it.
