Step by step making of the Tapioca kurma recipe:
firstly, lets prepare the green masala: for which we need ginger, garlic and green chilli. about 14-15 garlic, 2 inch ginger chopped and 2 green chillies are taken. all these are grind to a fine paste. keep it aside until use.
heat few drops of oil in a pan and roast coconut, sesame seeds and cashews. fry in simmer until it is slightly reddish. cool and transfer to a blender. blend to a very fine and smooth paste. keep it aside until use.
heat 3-4 tbsp of oil in a pressure cooker. add fennel seeds, cinnamon, cloves, curry leaves and let it crackle.
add the prepared green paste and fry for few seconds.
to this, add the chopped onions and fry for a minute.
chopped tomatoes are added along with vertically cut tapioca, turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt and prepared coconut paste. tapioca can also be cut to small cubes. but this way it makes a little difference in appearance of kurma.
mix well and fry for a minute. add 1.5 cups water.
check the seasoning, close and pressure cook for 4-5 whistles. let the pressure settle completely. open after that.
you can see beautiful texture of the kurma when cooked this way which is exactly like how we get in the restaurants. mix once and serve hot with roti.
