Tapioca is a commonly used tuber in the kitchens of Kerala. I will be sharing my first tapioca recipe here. This dish can be can be eaten with fish curry or chilli chutney.

Ingredients : (Serves 2)

Tapioca : 500 gms

Grated coconut : 1 cup

Procedure :

  • Peel and cut the tapioca into 1 inch cubes (or slightly smaller).
  • Boil water in a pan, add salt to it. Now add the cut and cleaned tapioca pieces into it.
  • Let the water boil and allow the tapioca to cook in the water.
  • Different varieties of tapioca have different cooking times.
  • Use a fork to check if the tapioca is well cooked. Once it is cooked, turn off the gas, drain thw water and keep it aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard, curry leaves and red chillies to it.
  • When the mustard splutters, add the cooked tapioca into it and stir well.
