Hello dear readers! Today I will share one more summer/monsoon season special fritters called as ‘Jeevkadgi bhajo’. Jeevkadgi means breadfruit most commonly called as ‘Jeegujje’ in the local language ‘Tulu’ in Mangalore. Breadfruit is usually available during summer season and continues its availability until few months of monsoon.
I have already shared the ‘jeevkadgi phodi’ recipe in the space. Usually ‘bhajo’ is prepared with besan batter where we dip the vegetable in the batter and deep fry. We prepare various dishes with breadfruit. Monsoon has almost hit Mangalore and this bhajo served with hot chai or kaapi will lighten up one’s day.
