Kappa (malabar style)


Tapioca (kappa) - 1 kg; cut into small pieces, boiled,
and strained
Onions - 2, medium size, finely chopped
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Coconut - 1 cup; fresh, grated
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Oil - 1 tablespoon (preferably coconut Oil)

Method: Grind the coconut coarsely with turmeric powder and salt and mix with the boiled tapioca. Cook it covered for 2 minutes in low heat, mash thoroughly, and keep it aside. Heat a flat-bottomed pan on a moderate heat. Pour in the oil. When very hot, add mustard seeds to splutter, curry leaves, and then onions.
