This Independence Day I decided to be a little patriotic and use our trini colours as the background to this scrumptious breadfruit fritters recipe I concocted in the kitchen. This was totally unplanned. As I photographed the fritters using different backgrounds, it wasn’t long that my sister brought out a bandana with the colours of the flag. A spark went off in my head and I quickly adjusted the still to include the red white and black. And now history is made, this is my first patriotic shot and maybe a trend I may follow for the next few years lol!!
This breadfruit fritters is my final offering for recipes you can make using breadfruit for now, but definitely not the last. It was a pleasure posting all these breadfruit dishes. I do hope you try all of them. I must say though that the breadfruit pie and roast breadfruit and saltfish went down gooood and soon I’ll be on the prowl for another breadfruit lol!! So today I’ll be short since we have a lime to go to with plenty food and drinks…
Happy Independence Trinidad and Tobago.
3 cups bread fruit, mashed
2 eggs beaten
2 seasoning pepper
6 chadon beni leaves, chopped
2 tbsp milk
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/ 2 onion, grated
1 cup cheese, grated
salt to taste
pepper to taste
oil for frying
Boil and mash the breadfruit.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix to a smooth consistency.
Note: When frying dip a spoon in some water then dip into the mixture.
This will prevent the breadfruit from sticking to the spoon.
Fry in batches over medium heat.
Drain and sprinkle a little salt. Serve with your favourite dip.
Ok a little more before I go….These little morsels are very more-ish so be sure to make a lot because they go very quickly and also this can be quickly converted to a GFCF version by using almond or rice milk and omitting the cheese.
So there we have it nice and simple. Hoping you enjoy your Independence Day today. Fifty one years and we’re still going strong. Let’s keep it that way. And, make sure you go watch the fireworks tonight lol!! See you soon with another trini recipe. Oh and by the way if you like the breadfruit fritters recipe why not share it with your friends.
