  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 cup grated white cheddar
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella

  • ½ cup diced red bell peppers
  • 3 tbsp yellow mustard

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 16 oz vegetable oil for frying


  • Cut the breadfruit into 4-6 segments. Rinse and place in a pot with 1 tablespoon of salt. Pour in water to cover the breadfruit, cover the pot, and let boil until tender.
  • Drain the water and let the segments cool until manageable. Peel off the outer skin and remove the core.
  • Mash the breadfruit with a fork until desired texture. Pour in the milk and add the cheeses, mustard, pimentos, chadon beni, chives, red bell pepper, saffron, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  • With clean hands, form 1.5-inch balls and set balls on a tray.
  • Pour the cooking oil into a pot and leave to heat. Sprinkle in a pinch of paprika.
  • Crack the egg into a small dish and beat. Set the bread crumbs in one bowl and the flour in another.
  • When the oil is hot enough to fry, coat the breadfruit balls in order of egg wash, flour, egg wash, and breadcrumbs. Fry until golden.
  • Enjoy hot with your favorite condiments.
