ABOUT Kappa Puzhungiyathu RECIPE

This is the most traditional breakfast of Kerala People. Tapioca / Cassava known as Kappa Kizhangu is the Staple food of the People of Kerala. I still remember the vacation days when this boiled Tapioca is served with Red chilli chutney as breakfast in my native place. Its very healthy , filling tasting heavenly.
