Tapioca Stir Fry
The Tapioca Stir fry is my Husband's Favorite dish. When he spot it, he immediately buys it and makes it all by himself. But then I spotted fresh Tapioca yesterday and bought 2 kg right away. I made this stir fry with 1 kg and it was soon gulped down by all in family. It goes well with fish curry and the Kerala version of fish curry.

Red Chilly Powder- 1 tsp
Salt- as per taste
Water for cooking tapioca

In a pressure cooker, cook tapioca with some water and salt along with turmeric for 1 whistle.
Meanwhile finely chop onions and dry grind shredded coconut to coarse powder.
Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard and red chillies.
When mustard crackles add onions, little salt (note already tapioca's salted) and fry them well.
