Maravalli Kilangu/Tapioca Vadai

As i have said earlier tapioca is one of my favourite ,which i can have any time.In a tv show they mada thattai & in another they made sweet laddu with it,then thought can make variety with this maravalli kilangu & tried this.To say the truth my daughter who don't like this kilangu ate well & liked it very much.

(Pre.Time- under 30 min)

  • Tapioca/Maravalli kilangu- 1 big piece
  • Rice flour-1\2 cup(or as needed)
  • Bengal gram/Channa dal/kadalai paruppu- 1 tbsp
  • Ginger grated- 2 tsp
  • Green chilli-2( acc to ur spice level)
  • Jeera- 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves-1 spring
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil to fry


1.Peel the outer portion of the kilangu,cut in medium pieces and pressure cook it for 3-5 whistle with little salt.

2.Soak channa dal in water for 15-20 min.

3.After the stream is released,drain water & smash it well, remove the inner root if it has.

4.Add rice flour,soaked Channa dal,grated ginger,g.chilli,jeera,salt &curry leaves and mix well for form a batter similar to vadai batter(no need to add water as the kilangu will have,if need just sprinkle very little).

5.Heat oil in a kadai,take small portion of the mix ,flatten in ur palm and add to heated oil.

6.Fry on both sides & serve with ketchup.

Best to a have it with tea/coffee.

You can even add maida in the place of rice flour.

My daughter did this arrangement.
