I have tried this tapioca murukku long time back once when I came to Singapore after marriage. We usually buy tapioca often and cook it with salt to have it as an evening snack. Before marriage, at salem we used to buy this from the street vendor who brings this tapioca in a sack, behind in a cycle. They will keep some fresh tapioca plant leaves. He sells it shouting “ kilangu kuchi kilangu”. After marriage, at my inlaws place, every one is big fan of it. This is the most wanted snack there. t no time, the kizhangu will disappear. After I came to Singapore, I often buy and make this for Vj. Here the texture is bit different than the Indian tapiopca. Here it has more fibre in it. Yet I often buy. We can buy tapioca in wet markets and also peeled tapioca in Fairprice.
So here’s my very own tapioca murukku, which is crispy and really flavorful. Great tea time snack. Jst few pieces is enough to make this murukku, so next time when you cook tapioca, save few and try this murukku. Tapioca is also known as Cassava, kappa, kappa kizhangu, kuchi kizhangu and maravalli kizhangu.
The murukku is very very crispy and light too with a hallow middle. It becomes more flavorful the next day.
