Recipe Marathon - Day 9 Kappa Upkari
Kappa/Tapioca - 1 kg
Coconut oil - 3-4 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Chilly powder - 3-4 tsp
Salt to taste
Chop into small pieces as you would to make upkari/stir-fry.
Boil water in a big pan and add the chopped kappa to it.
When it comes to a rolling boil,drain the kappa and keep aside(the kappa would be half cooked by now)
In a kadai,add the coconut oil and splutter mustard seeds.
Add chilly powder and salt and stir well(this is to ensure that the seasoning coats well on the kappa pieces).
Add the kappa and simmer till it cooks-do not add water.
Tastes great as a tea-time snack.
