Konkani Style Vegetable Fritters Or Phodi | Breadfruit Or Jeev Kadgee Phodi Or Palapanasa Kadagi Phodi | Mulangi Or Raddish Phodi | Raw Banana Phodi

Phodi's can be made with many vegetables like eggplant, potato, okra, yam or suran, cauliflower, raw banana, pumpkin, bitter gourd or karela, mushrooms, pointed gourd or parwar, radish , sweet potato, ripe plantain, jackfruit, bread fruit and many others.There are actually 2 types of phodi we can make. One, where you apply the masala to the vegetable and keep for 20 minutes. Then shallow fry them after dipping in rava or sooji. On the other hand, you just apply salt to the cut vegetable and keep for 20 minutes then dip them in a dry rava and chilli powder masala and shallow fry. Here I have given the first type. In this kind of phodi, breadfruit, raw banana, radish, cauliflower fits the best. Here I have taken breadfruit for the demo.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes excluding the standing time.

Servings: 4

  • 4 -6 breadfruit pieces
  • 3 – 4 table spoon sooji
  • ½ table spoon red chilli powder
  • 1/3  table spoon turmeric powder
  • A pinch of asafoetida powder
  • 2 table spoon oil
  • Salt as per taste

  • Remove the outer skin and pith from the breadfruit.
  • Cut it into thick slices as shown in picture.
  • Take all the pieces in a bowl and put red chillie powder, turmeric powder , asafoetida powder and salt. Keep them aside for 20 minutes.
  • Roll the breadfruit pieces in the sooji and start placing each slice evenly on a hot tawa.
  • Drizzle oil around and over each slice and cook same way on both sides till done.
  • To check if it is done, insert the steel spatula through the slice. It should be soft and go through easily, should not be tough.
  • Serve hot as a side with rice and curry/dal.
PS:  For the raw banana or raddish phodi, the outer skin has to be removed first. Then Cut them into thick pieces like we have done  for breadfruit.
