I think the most famous chips in Kerala is the Banana chips .After this it is Tapioca Chips. You can buy them every where. When ever I go to Kerala i buy both of them. My husband and daughter loves them too.
While i was making them they started popping into the kitchen and eating them, i had to tell them, keep off I have to take picture for the blog.
It is the first time I am making this chips. Every time I had to wait till I am in Kerala to eat them. As i always thought I coudn't get the tapioca here.
But then last month I saw this post in Cynthia's place and there is was CASSAVA. While looking to the picture I was saying to myself Hey this looks like the Kappa/Tapioca we get back at home.
I suddenly had this flashing image of me seeing CASSAVA when ever I went to Chinese super market but always ignored.
But I never put the connection that it was Kappa ( I know i know really stupid of me )So this week when i went to the chinese supermarket you all can guess what i bought, the famous cassava/tapioca/Kappa keeping in mind that it is RCI Kerala which is hosted by Jyothsna of CurryBazaar
Ready to crunchIngridients.
Kappa/tapioca/Cassava - 2 Skin removed and slice them thin
Oil for frying
Few curry leaves
2 tsp salt mixed with a bit of water
Heat the oil in a wok. Add the Kappa pieces and deep fry them. Don't over load them, then it won't get crispy.
When then are fried add few curry leaves to the wok and sprinkle with salt. Drain them and enjoy.
