Tapioca is not just another starch-tuber for Keralites, but the one staple food that helped a society survive during the World War II period, when the state suffered from scarcity of food grains. Tapioca made its way to the working class as breakfast, dinner and snacks and found its soul-mate in the spicy red Kerala fish curry. You can find tapioca, or what fondly called as Kappa, from toddy shops to star hotels. Onmanorama delivers you this traditional mashed tapioca recipe that you can try for breakfast, dinner or even as a side dish for your lunch. Enjoy!
