Jeegujje melogara/Breadfruit majjigehuli/Breadfruit in yogurt and coconut gravy

Seeing breadfruit here in Indian shop was a surprise to Mr. S and he brought it home few days back, asked me to prepare yogurt and coconut based curry which is his favorite, he just loves all possible vegetables in this yogurt and coconut gravy. Last Sunday we all had an awesome lunch with jeegujje(local name we use in D.K in India) majjigehuli and rice for lunch. I knew almost all other items we can prepare out of this but to my surprise I learnt a recipe of side dish from the peels of this breadfruit which also accompanied our lunch platter.
