Tapioca chips recipe with step by step photos. Crispy and spicy hot chips style homemade tapioca chips recipe. The popular hot chips outlets in Tamilnadu offers so many varieties of chips. Plain and spicy potato chips, nendran chips, raw banana chips, tapioca chips, bitter gourd chips are some very popular south Indian chips recipes.
Tapioca chips is usually made in two ways. Crispy round tapioca wafers and tapioca finger chips. Though I like these chips from hot chips outlets, the tapioca chips sold there are awfully spicy. When I saw fresh tapioca sold in heaps in the local vegetable market I immediately thought of making this chips with tapioca. I bought 2 big tapioca roots, used a portion for making chips. With remaining tapioca I made a tasty vada too.
To make tapioca chips select fresh big and fully grown roots. Keep the tapioca immersed in water for 20 minutes to remove mud and dirt. Next scrub off the peel and slice into 2mm roundels. You can cut using a chips grater, mandoline slicer or knife. It is best to use good quality groundnut oil or coconut oil for frying tapioca chips. The flavor and taste will be a bit less if fried in refined oil. Here I have used moderate amount of chili powder in this chips recipe. You can vary as per taste.
Serve tapioca chips with coffee or tea. This chips stays good for a week at room temperature. Store in an airtight dry container.
