By instant I have seen the Tapioca when I gone for shopping. Immediately, I remember my childhood days. Yes. This Tapioca/Maravalli Kizhangu was one of the best snack in the village. I still remember that we used to buy 2kg of tapioca just for 4rs. Sometime we exchange recycle items like news paper, the old plastic, brandy bottles, metal items, old cloths,etc.. for buying this root. In fact, the root would be the origin food for human. Also, in order to get all minerals to our body, we should have root at least once in a week. In villages, we used to just boil by adding the salt and season in order to make snack. Also this can be used for chips, dosa,adai,etc. Lets see how we can make Adai/Dosa with this Tapioca.


Tapioca(Cut into cubes) - 1-1/2 cup
Boiled Rice - 1 cup (I used brown rice)
Fried gram - ¼ cup
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
Cinnamon stick - 1 inch
Garlic pods - 5 to 6
Dry Red chilli - 6
Coriander leaves - ½ cup
Salt for taste
Oil - 1 tsp


Add everything into the mixer grinder jar given in ingredients except Coriander leaves and oil.

We no need to soak rice for this Dosa. Its plus right?
The consistency should be coarse. So Grind by adding water spoon by spoon.
Take out the ground batter into the bowl and add chopped coriander leaves. Mix it thoroughly.

Apply a spoon of oil in non stick skillet or dosa pan and apply 1 big spoon of batter and spread clockwise in the circular motion gently. Now, you will get circular shape dosa. Cook for 30 seconds then flip into other side to cook gently.
Now You will get very healthy Tapioca dosa. Serve with your favorite chutney or sambar.
