Vilayat means foreign in Marathi. So Vilayati Fanas means foreigner jackfruit which is otherwise known as breadfruit in English. Fresh breadfruit is available in many south American stores or it's also available in the frozen section of Indian stores.

1. Pressure cook white peas sprouts adding turmeric powder and water.
2. Pour cooked peas and breadfruit in a saucepan. Add ground masala.
3. Add water to get the desired consistency.
4. Add salt and jaggery. Bring to boil. Let it simmer.
5. In a separate saucepan, add oil. Splutter mustard seeds, asafetida and curry leaves.
6. Drizzle over the curry. Switch off the gas.
