Fried Buah Sukun (Breadfruit Fritters)

I didn't even know this fruit exist until my mom point it out to me.Every house at my mom Taman(Garden) have one Sukun tree at their front yard.The developer for the Taman grown Buah Sukun( Breadfruit Tree )for each house before they hand over their home to them.At first I thought it's Buah Nangka or Cempedak but after I take a good look at this fruit it's really look similar to Jackfruit but in smaller version .
Each Breadfruit weight about 2 kilos.The texture look similar to Nangka or Cempedak,right?

My mom make Breadfruit Fritters.I understand Sabahan love Buah Sukun.They used Buah Sukun as fermented wine.
It's taste really yam
My mom deep fried it with flour until crispy
It is actually consider tasteless, chewy and starchy fruit with the texture of soursop fruit. If you can imagine yourself eating white plain bread that is chewy and tangling between your teeth, that’s how the breadfruit taste and feel like.
This is how it's look in side .. The fruit is rounded shape between the size of kids football toy to original football size. The breadfruit don’t even some close to comparing with cempedak which is sweet, aromatic and soft
I guess not a lot of people know Malaysian Breadfruit exist!!..If you happen to visit Pasar Malam ,some vendor stall sell Fried Buah Sukun.Give it a try!! You won't regret it
