  • How to Make Tapioca:

    1. Peel and cut the tapioca into 1/2 inch pieces. Boil it.
    2. When half-boiled, strain the water (this is to take off the bitterness found in tapioca skin).
    3. Boil again by adding water, and after the water comes to a boil, strain the water again. The tapioca should be 3/4th cooked.
    4. Crush the green chillies and shredded coconut. Only crush it, do not make a paste.
    5. Add turmeric powder and red chilli powder.
    6. Mix 1/2 cup of water to this mixture, add salt and boil tapioca to a semi-soft consistency.
    7. Let the water evaporate completely.
    8. Heat coconut oil in a pan, pop mustard seeds and curry leaves. Add it to the tapioca mixture and mix it.
