Tapioca curry - மரவள்ளி கிழங்கு கறி 

Fresh tapioca is nicer but you can buy this as frozen product and it is good too

Tapioca 200 Gms
Curry powder 1 tablespoon
Onion 1 medium
Green chilly 3
Milk 1 cup


If fresh, peel the skin and wash. If you are using frozen tapioca, there will be no skin.

Cut into medium sized pieces.

In a cooking pot, place these pieces, diced onion, curry powder, green chillies split into two lengthwise, and one cup water and bring to boil.

Do not cover the pot. (Very important to cook tapioca in an open pot)

Cook on low heat and stir intermittently and check if this is sticking to the bottom of the pan.

When the yam is cooked and soft, keep stirring and break up pieces into coarse mash.

Add milk and salt and keep stirring until the whole thing boils.

Simmer on low heat until the curry has lost all the liquid and is a thick paste.

There is a strong tendency for this to stick to the bottom of the pan so keep stirring and cook on low heat.

Garnish and remove from fire.
