Breadfruit Pies

As stated before, there are many great tasting recipes, both food and drinks, one can make from a breadfruit.

2 lb breadfruit, peeled  and cut into quarters

1 tsp salt

¼ cup melted butter

3/4 cup flour

2 tbs vegetable oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 small onion, minced

½ carrot, finely chopped

½ cup finely chopped fresh herbs

½ lb ground chicken

⅓ cup chopped parsley

1 egg, beaten

1 cup fine toasted bread crumbs


Boil the breadfruit with the salt in plenty of water until tender, about 20–30 minutes. While still hot, crush the breadfruit and add the melted butter and ¹₄ cup of flour. Combine until the mixture starts to stay together. Knead for a few minutes, cover and set aside.  Heat the oil in a sauté pan and add the garlic and onion. Sauté for a few minutes, then add the carrot and mixed fresh herbs. Add the ground chicken and cook until tender. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook for about 15 minutes, remove from the heat, add the parsley and leave mixture to cool. Preheat oven to 375ºF.  Flour a work surface and roll out breadfruit dough to about ¹₄ inch   thickness. Stamp out circles with a 3 inch cutter. Place about 1 tablespoon of filling on the lower portion of each circle. Fold over, and seal with a fork. Dust with the remaining flour, brush with beaten egg and roll in bread crumbs. Bake for about 15 minutes until golden
