About Tapioca

Tapioca Plant (Cassava) is one of the main cultivation of Kerala. In Kerala it is called Kappa . It can be cultivated in all seasons. The root of the plant is called tapioca.It is rich with protein and Carbohydrates.Because of its taste almost all the people of Kerala likes it. A plenty of dishes can be made using this.Tapioca chips,tapioca pappad,tapioca fish curry are some examples.

How to cook Tapioca

Peel the outer brown skin and thick white skin .(we find it difficult to peel the skin for the first time.but later when we learn the method by practicing we find it more interesting.) Cut the Tapioca into desired shape .Boil water and put all the Tapioca into the water. The water should cover the tapioca.Add salt after it is cooked. Drain water. Now the Tapioca is ready to use.

About Cutlets

Cutlets can be made using any ingredients.The only thing to remember is there should be a binding agent to bind the cooked ingredients. Usually Potatoes are used as binding agent. Here i am using cooked and smashed Tapioca as binding agent.

I think i have described clearly about the cooking methods of Tapioca.If it is helpful to the beginners I am satisfied.

      It is a good attempt to introduce our traditional food to the rest of the world. Kappa is a protein rich food and was once the favorite item of Malayalees. But we are now running behind fast food which is creating lot of health problems for the people. Keep on writing such nice article. All the best.
