Ingredients to make Mashed Tapioca (Kappa Kuzhachathu)

  • 1 kg Tapioca
  • 1 cup grated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 green chilli
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 sprig curry leaves

How to make Mashed Tapioca (Kappa Kuzhachathu)

  1. Wash tapioca in water well to remove mud and cut them into medium size pieces. Peel off using a sharp knife and cut into small pieces.
  2. Wash the tapioca pieces again in water and add them to a wide pan with plenty of water.
  3. Cook until tender and drain water. You can pressure cook them instead, cook for 2 whistles and wait until steam has released completely.
  4. Add the grated coconut, turmeric powder, cumin seeds and green chilli in a blender and grind coarsely.
  5. Cook the drained tapioca pieces adding the coarse mixture on low flame until the raw smell of the mixture goes off. This will take 5-6 minutes.
  6. Add salt to the mixture and mash well using a potato masher or wooden ladle. Keep aside.
  7. Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds. Add dry red chilli and curry leaves. Pour the seasoning over mashed tapioca and mix everything well.
  8. Serve hot with spicy red fish curry or beef curry.

My Tip:

You can substitute bird's eye chilli (kanthari mulaku) with green chilli.
