Cassava Murukku/Maravallikizhangu Murukku/Tapioca Chakli

Have you ever tried murukku/chaklis with Tapioca/Cassava which is also known as Yuca, Manioc,a known popular nutty flavored, starchy root vegetable or tuber. And its cultivated throughout the world from which flour, tapioca pearls are produced. Indian especially South Indians make many delicious dishes out this tuber. I love this root vegetable very much and i love to dish out Tapioca Chips quite often. However this tuber is often used in my cooking. Diwali is around the corner and this year i was planning to prepare some different savouries and sweets to please my family and my near ones. Diwali is a popular Indian festival which i never fail to celebrate even my professional life keeps me busy. And this year, diwali is on 6th november and fortunately i will be at home. So planning so many dishes to prepare for this festival.

I saw the cassava root in the store yesterday and I was so tempted to pick it up and try this murukku but resisted as I know these are addictive and I wanted to stay away from these sinful goodies for a while.
