Kadachakka Chips always bring nostalgic memories from my childhood. In Kerala, breadfruit trees are in plenty. Breadfruit is a prickly fruit, oval in appearance, very popular throughout Kerala. You can prepare breadfruit in different variations ranging from cooking, boiling, grilling, deep frying and roasting and each variation has its own special taste and flavor. Kadachakka Chips are a tasty snack relished during evenings with a cup of hot chai. These easy to prepare chips are a culinary delight enjoyed both with the young as well as old. You can also observe the tasty chips with street side vendors selling as a hot favorite. The crispy Breadfruit Chips are great to munch. Breadfruit resembles a small jackfruit in appearance. Nowadays breadfruits are available in market too and the best part is that there are no seeds inside unlike jackfruit.

Unlike foods that are just nutritious, breadfruit is regarded a true super food, that is high in carbohydrates and protein, gluten free, loaded with antioxidants, omegas and folate. Breadfruit is an energy booster and the fiber content in it helps in decreasing cholesterol and triglycerides that causes heart disease. Crispy Kadachakka Chips are the perfect chips for your evenings.
