Sweet Tapioca Patties / Cassava patties / Maravalli Kizhangu Inippu adai !!!

Today, I wanna introduce a new recipe from my kitchen trials !!! this is the recipe I learned from my neighborhood. It’s really a delicious & healthy evening snack recipe for kids. In India, the term “tapioca-root” is used to represent the root of the plant (cassava), rather than the starch. In some other region, it is much used in puddings and as a thickening for soups. Tapioca is a staple food in southern part of India. Mostly the tapioca root was boiled, used for preparing snacks like both savory & sweet, and also used for curries of both vegan & non – vegetarian. It is a gluten-free food.
