Yucca Stir-Fry / Maravalli Kizhangu Poriyal/ Tapioca Subzi

Yucca Stir-Fry:

I was completely taken by surprise…how this bland starchy roots, takes in all the influences from the basic ingredients and eventually turns up into a fulfilling meal! So, here is a simple recipe for the day.


Yucca/cassava roots 1 large


Dry red chili 3 crushed

Chana + Urad dal – 2 teaspoons

Mustard seeds 1/4 spoon

Cumin seeds 1/4 spoon

Peppercorns 2

Asafoetida 1 pinch

Curry leaves few

Oil few spoons.


Peel and dice the roots into heavy chunks. Boil for complete 20 minutes.

Once they are done, discard the water and mash the tuber. I left them bit chunky for extra taste.

Well, now temper the spices in oil and runt eh seasonings over the tubers made…stir-fry for 5-7 minutes.

Serve as a side dish or main dish.
