Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Cut the tapioca into very thin pieces, add salt and boil in enough water till the tapioca pieces are done. Drain out the water and leave to cool a bit.

Step 2

Grate the beetroot. Mix it with the boiled and cooled tapioca. Keep this aside.

Step 3

Meanwhile, grind to a coarse paste: 3/4 cup shredded coconut, cumin seeds, fenugreek, 7 small onions, garlic, ginger and 2 green chillies.

Step 4

Mix the coconut mixture with the beetroot and tapioca. Add salt as required.

Step 5

Heat oil in a pan. Once hot, crackle the mustard seeds and fry the remaining shallots, dry red chillies, remaining 1/4 cup of grated coconut and curry leaves to a golden brown color.

Step 6

Add turmeric and red chilly powder and stir in previously prepared tapioca mixture. Cover and wait till the veggies are cooked.

Step 7

Tapioca and beetroot thoran is ready.

Step 8

Tip: While boiling tapioca, add salt only when it is almost cooked. It should not be over cooked, otherwise the tapioca will get mushy.
