Tapioca

>> Sunday, October 5, 2008

Several types of ubi kayu or tapioca can be found at my backyard, hubby planted them and I usually get the young shoots cooked as greens. It is basically derived from the cassava plant. It is so tasty especially when you cook it with coconut milk and dried fish or ikan masin. But before the leaves can be eaten, you have to pound it with mortar and pestle until it become small pieces and dark green. Im not used to pounding thus I just squeeze the leaves repeatedly until satisfied then wash it with water and cooked with dried fish and coconut milk. More flavour? add in some chillies...the taste? yummy!

The tapioca fibrous roots are used in varieties of cooking and preparation style like bread flour, laundry starch, alcoholic brew as well as tapioca pudding. Normally I just peel the skin and boil it with water adding in pinches of salt. When you poke it with knife and feel it soft then it is already cooked.
