Tapioca cutlet/

Kappa cutlet             
                Every part of Kerala refers to Tapioca in a different name. Kappa, Kolli, Poola, Marachini are some of the names to my knowledge. May be there are more which I am not aware of....Tapioca in the form of cutlets,have u ever tasted???if not,try this,u ll be tempted to make it again and again..This tastes excellent with ulli chammanthi,mulaghu chammanthi,ketchup.....try ths.....

Tapioca chopped into cubes - 2 cup
Onion chopped - 1
Green chilly chopped - 4 nos
Ginger - a small piece
Curry leaves - 4-5
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Egg - 1        
Oil for frying
Bread crumbs - 1 cup

Method of preparation:
                        Cook tapioca with turmeric and salt. The cooked water is usually discarded since some toxic from the root is released on cooking. Heat oil in a kadai. Add the chopped chillies,ginger and curry leaves. Add chopped onion to it and saute till pink. Crumble the cooked tapioca and mix with the seasonings. Check the salt and let it cook for few minutes. Cool and mix together. Take small balls out of it and shape into cutlets...Now whisk the egg in a bowl,dip the cutlet, and now roll in the bread crumbs.Deep fry in the oil......serve hot with chammanthi or ketchup.
