Tapioca Pakoda | Tapioca Bonda ..

I already posted Tapioca Pakoda, but this is another version with shredded potato.

Ing :

Tapioca pearls : 1 cup
Rice flour : 2 table spoon
Shredded potato : 1 cup
Red chilli powder : 1/2 table spoon(Adjust accordingly)
Garam masala powder : 1/4 tea spoon
Finely chopped onion : 1/4 cup
Turmeric powder : 1/8 tea spoon
Salt : 1/2 tea spoon (Adjust accordingly)
Warm vegetable oil : 1 table spoon

For deep fry :

Vegetable oil : 2 cups

Method :

* Wash and soak tapioca pearls in 3 cups of cold water for atleast 5 to 6 hours or overnight.

* Peel the skin of potato and grate it. Squeeze the shredded potato and transfer it into a mixing bowl. (Do not add potato water)

* Completely drain the water from tapioca pearls and transfer it into the mixing bowl.

* Add in all the ingredients to mixing bowl and mix until everything combines completely.

* In the meantime heat vegetable oil in a non stick pan,once oil becomes very hot,reduce the flame to medium.

* Make a lemon sized balls from mixture and gently press it and deep fry them both sides until they turn crisp.

* I served tapioca pakoda with Spinach Chutney.

  4. Hi Shree, This is to tell you that I saw your beaten coffee in En Petite Chef. Though we are not coffee drinkers, but during winters, we do enjoy once in a while. I knew about beating the coffee, but when i read in your blog, i got motivated to try out. And believe me, we enjoyed it soooo much. Since then I and my daughter beat coffee every afternoon and relish our cuppa! Thanks and yes my daughter is also sending love to "shree" auntie whose recipe she enjoys so much!
