Red Bean and Breadfruit Tandoori Patties


Breadfruit is a popular tropical fruit that can be eaten boiled or made into curries and other various preparations. It is packed with Vitamin C, although I believe most of it get destroyed in processing and cooking. I’ve used it in this recipe as I had a bit of left over.

To boil, remove all skin, place in a thick bottom pan with a little water. Cover and allow to boil on low-medium heat until soft. Take care to check the level of water to avoid it from burning. This is how it looks like when boiled.


If you can’t find breadfruit at your local grocery or supermarket, then potatoes or sweet potatoes will be just fine.

1 can of red bean (drained) or 250g boiled
200g breadfruit boiled and finely chopped
1 red onion finely chopped
1 pinch ground cumin
Some finely chopped curry leaves (use dried ones if you can’t find fresh ones)
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon tandoori powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil (spray oil is best)
Aluminium foil
