Tapioca Soup

Back in my childhood days,my grand-mom used to make Jaava(a soup like thing) with this Tapioca during summers,she used to have it either with milk/buttermilk I never liked it as it smells like a starch,but I like it when made like a kheer,adding sugar,milk,elachi and some fried cashew.I was watching Abhiruchi a cookery program in ETV few days back I came through this recipe which is very similar to the one which my grand-mom made,the only difference is he just spiced up for extra flavor.
This soup works better during summers as Tapioca helps in cooling our body and helps in getting-rid of the hot temperatures.


Tapioca/Sabudana:1 cup(soak then water for 2 hrs)
Buttermilk:1/2 cup
Water:1.5 cup
Green Chillies:3(finely chopped)
Ginger:1/2 spn(finely chopped/grated)
Garlic:2 cloves(finely chopped/crushed)
Salt:To Taste
Pepper:To Taste
Oil:1 spn


1.Take a Sauce pan,add oil,when hot add the chopped ginger,garlic,green chillies and fry till they release good aroma,now add the water and bring to a boil.
2.Now add the soaked and drained tapioca/sabudana and cook it covered till the sabudana turns smooth.It takes jst 4-5 mins for them to cook on medium flame.Add salt and pepper to taste.
3.When the tapioca turns smooth ,reduce the heat to low and add half a cup of buttermilk and stir well and bring to boil,turn off the heat and garnish it with Chopped Chilantro.
4.Serve it hot.
