Tapioca curry | Kappa curry - south indian style

 Tapioca is a really yummy tuber.Its simply cooked and seasoned with mustard seeds in coconut oil in the south and it tastes heavenly.My DH used to tell me how the gujarati house he stayed in UK served him sabji style tapioca curry for chapathis.I have tried it but not too happy with my results i never repeated it.Last week i tried this curry and its just a modified version of our south indian curry but i found it much better.A good change to regular tapioca.



 I usually try not to take pictures at night and these are really not the best.With exams going on and the big move coming up i think i am a little too anxious about it all.I hope to get back to normal blogging soon once i move from my brand new kitchen.
