Mashed Tapioca/Kappa Puzhukku

My love for Kerala cuisine push me quite often to try their delicious dishes. Few day back i got some fresh tapiocas aka Maravallikizhangu from a chinese store. Instead of pressure cooking and having for snacks, i wanted to try this mashed tapioca as a well know dish from Kerala called kappa puzhukku.Since ever i learned this kappa puzhukku from my friend, i was planning to make them from a long,finally i tried them only few days back.

In Kerala,tapiocas can be served at anytime of the day as breakfast,lunch or dinner and also even as snacks, this mashed tapioca can be eaten by itself or with a combination of any side dish. Keralites have this puzhukku usually with fish curries, but i served this mashed tapioca with rice porridge, both tastes fabulous together and we truly enjoyed this combo.Sending to Kerala Kitchen guest hosted by Julie and Akila's Dish name starts with-M.



3cups Tapioca (peeled & diced)
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
Few curry leaves
1no Onion (chopped)
