Dried Tapioca (Unakka kappa)
Matured tapiocas are parboiled and dried in the sun so that it can be stored for longer periods. These dried tapiocas are called by the name ‘Unakka Kappa’ or ‘Vaattu Kappa’ (വാട്ട് കപ്പ) (dried tapioca). During the winter season this dried tapioca or Unakka kappa നാടൻ കപ്പ is normally used for the preparation of ‘Kappa Puzhukku’ or Tapioca with grounded coconut mixture. Fish curry and kappa puzhukku are undoubtedly one of the highlights of Kerala cuisines.
