Baked Stuffed Breadfruit Recipe

Baked Stuffed Breadfruit Recipe

Ingredients :

1.5 kg unripe breadfruit, washed

250 g minced meat

1 tablespoon cooking oil

1 onion, chopped finely

1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic

2 fresh chili, remove seeds and chopped

2 teaspoons cilantro, ground

1 teaspoon cumin, ground

Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking oil

 

Method :

Leave the breadfruit unpeeled. Cut a small slice off one side to create a flat surface so that it can sit on the baking dish. Cut another slice off the opposite side to scoop out the center of the breadfruit, leaving only the shell. Use salt and pepper to season the cavityof the breadfruit. Chop the scooped out breadfruit finely.

 

Heat a frying pan with oil and fry the onion and garlic over low heat until soft. Add minced meat, cilantro, chili and cumin. Stir fry until meat is brown. Add the finely chopped breadfruit and a tablespoon of water. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Scoop the meat mixture to fill the cavity of the breadfruit. Replace the slice to cover the filling. Brush the breadfruit all over with oil and place in an ovenproof dish. Heat up an oven to 180oC (350oF), bake the breadfruit for about 1.5 hours or until the breadfruit is soft. Test by piercing with a fine skewer. Serve the baked stuffed breadfruit hot.
