For the Breadfruit Chips

  • 5 Breadfruit
  • 5 tbsp Salt
  • 10 tbsp Vinegar Apple Cider works nicely
  • 5 tbsp Chilly Powder
  • 3 tbsp Garam Masala
  • 3 tbsp Turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Asafoetida Hing

For the Breadfruit Nachos made from leftover Breadfruit Chips

  • 2 Green Peppers
  • 100 g Mozzarella


Breadfruit Chips

  • Chop the breadfruit into wedges.
  • Add vinegar, salt, pepper, chilly powder, turmeric and garam masala. Or anything else you prefer. (They taste great, with just plain 'ol salt too.)
  • Add asafoetida or hing for some extra zing. (If you're gluten free, make sure your hing is not processed with wheat. Buy gluten free.)
  • Leave the breadfruit to rest for an hour.
  • Deep fry the breadfruit if you want them extra crispy, shallow fry if you like the crispy outside and mulchy inside taste.
  • Drain the oil on a paper towel and serve!

Breadfruit Nachos

  • If you have leftover breadfruit chips after a few days, just throw them in a pan with a few diced green peppers. 
  • Grate mozzarella cheese over the the chips and green pepper.  
  • Fry for 5 to 10 minutes and serve!


  • We've used 5 breadfruit here, but even if you use just 1 breadfruit, you'll have more than enough chips.
  • The quantity of spices can be adjusted depending on your tastebuds. 
  • These chips can be made with just plain salt too.
