Hmm.. I never thought it will be so easy to make a yummy kappa/kizhangu/tapioca vevichathu. All you need is

Kappa - 1/2 Kg.
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tea spoon
Red chilly powder - 1/4 tea spoon
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tea spoon
Coconut oil - 2 table spoon
Curry leaves - 4-5
Salt - 1 tea spoon

Peel kappa and cut it into small pieces.

Boil a cup of water in a cooking bowl. Add Kappa, turmeric powder, red chilly powder and salt to it. Wait till kappa gets softened. You can check it by pressing the kappa with a spoon or knife. Once it is softened, take it out of the heat, drain out the remaining water and keep it aside.

In another pan heat oil, splutter mustard seeds then add curry leaves and then add kappa. Mix it well. Turn off the stove and have your delicious kappa.

Tips: Adding grated coconut in third step, after adding kappa and before mixing it altogether, will add a great taste to the dish.
