Neer Ponusu /Jeev Kadgi Phodi (fritters)

I am sharing traditional style of making the fritters in konkani style just like how my mom and gran used to make it with a ground spice paste . This spice paste can be even frozen and used whenever you feel like having them. Today I have used this paste in making fritters out of breadfruit ....choice here is endless you can even make fritters out of vegs of your choice like cauliflower, potato, karela these . Do try this I am sure you will enjoy making and sharing it with your loved one's as much as I have done over the years ... Happy Cooking !


1/2 cup sona masoori /Basmati Rice 

8-10 Red chillies 

salt to taste

1/2 tsp Hing / Asafeotida  powder 

1/2 tsp Coriander powder 

Breadfruit cut into thin Slices (Here I have cut the breadfuit in quarters first then with a quarter of this cut into thin slices 


  • Soak Rice with Red chillies and grind it with very little water to a coarse paste .
  • Take it out in a container add salt to taste, hing , coriander powder mix it well .
  • Now add in bread fruit pieces and mix then well in this paste ensuring they are well coated and deep fry in oil in golden brown. (tip : I sometimes coat it with fine semolina just to get a crisp texture )
  • This is a traditional way of making fritters which is an age old recipe but nevertheless one of my favourite way of making them too :)
  • Variations : Instead of Breadfruit you can even use cauliflower, potato, karela .Do try this I am sure you will love it :)
