Tip: Breadfruit, also known as "ulu" in Hawaii, is the staple food in many tropical regions. Breadfruit mash is a common dish of either cooked or fermented breadfruit mixed with coconut milk and baked in banana leaves. Mashed ulu can also be used as a substitute for taro for making poi resulting in breadfruit poi or "poi ulu."
