Tapioca is the Root part of cassava plant. It is native to South America, but now cultivated and enjoyed around the globe. It is very high in Carbohydrates, it helps in healthy weight gain, increase in circulation and red blood cell count, Lower cholesterol, improve metabolic activities, protect heart health, prevent diabetes and still many more health benefits. It is very hard so one should cook it properly till it becomes very soft. I usually make Palya/subji with Tapioca, that too very rarely… because it is not available here in Gurgaon easily. The Tapioca palya / subji is made in very simple method, Just cook (steam) it properly and add it to the prepared tempering and mix well, its cooking time is the only time consuming factor, once it is cooked/steamed it will be ready with in even less than 5 minutes.
