To cook Breadfruit Porridge, you can follow this general recipe:
- 1 medium-sized breadfruit
- 4 cups of water (for boiling breadfruit)
- 4 cups of milk (can use coconut milk for added flavor)
- 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk or sugar (adjust to taste)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
- Pinch of salt
- Additional toppings and flavorings like nutmeg, grated coconut, or raisins (optional)
Start by preparing the breadfruit. Peel the breadfruit and cut it into small pieces or grate it. Rinse the grated breadfruit to remove any excess starch.
In a large pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the grated or chopped breadfruit to the boiling water and cook until it becomes tender and soft. This usually takes about 15-20 minutes.
Once the breadfruit is cooked, drain the water and return the pot to the stove. Add the milk, sweetened condensed milk or sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon (if desired), and a pinch of salt. Stir well to combine.
Place the pot over medium heat and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Let it cook for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
Adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more sugar or sweetened condensed milk if needed. You can also adjust the consistency by adding more milk if you prefer a thinner porridge.
Remove the pot from heat and let the porridge cool slightly before serving. Stir occasionally as it cools to prevent a skin from forming on top.
Serve the Breadfruit Porridge warm in bowls. You can garnish it with additional toppings such as grated coconut, a sprinkle of nutmeg, or raisins if desired.
