Kappa/Tapioca with ulli chammanthi/shallot chutney

Tapioca and ulli chammanthi is always a fav of ours...I am sure most of the mallu's like this...so its a kind of easy and tasty snack/dinner for us...


Tapioca-2 no(cut to medium sized pieces,roughly)
Turmeric-1/4 tsp
Water to boil
Salt to taste
Mustard-1 tsp
Curry leaves-1 stalk
Shallots-6 nos
Dry Red Chilli-2 no
Coconut Oil-2 tsp/1 tbsp.


Method Of Preparation:
1. Cut the tapioca and wash with turmeric powder.
2. In a pressure cooker/vessel add the tapioca, turmeric and the water(water should stay above tapioca).Cook for two whistles(on high flame)/till tapioca becomes tender.
3. Drain the water in the tapioca(its not good to use)
4. In a wok,heat oil,sputter mustard,red chilli,fry shallots till translucent and add curry leaves and then add cooked tapioca along with required salt.Mix well.(If tapioca looks too dry and you feel like salt is not dissolved properly use a tsp of water,usually its not required.)
5. Serve warm.




Tips:
1. You can also add  grinded paste of coconut used in puzhukku. That also taste good.
2. 2 whistles in cooker sometimes makes tapioca bit mushy(we like it that way) ...If you want it hard and seperate pieces go for 1 whistle and the cook it open(if not done).Sometimes its cooking time depends on type of tapioca too...
3. Turmeric gives it a  yellow colour...if you dont want it whlie washing tapioca add turmeric and soak tapioca for 10 min. then wash it again with clear water and cook it without turmeric.

Shallot chutney/Ulli chammanthi



Shallots-10 no/half of big onion(cut to small pieces)
Chilly powder-1 to 1 nd 1/2 tsp(acc to ur spice level)
Salt to taste
Coconut Oil-2 tsp(reduce it to 1 tsp if you dont want it much)

Method Of Preparation:
1. Grind shallots, chilly powder,salt coarsely without using water. Transfer to a vessel and add coconut oil and mix well.Serve it with tapioca/dosa/idlli.



Tips:
1. You can also grate the shallot/onion,add chilly powder,salt and oil and mix.
2. Instead of chilly powder you can also use green chilly and curry leaves and grind it.
