KAPPA ERISSERY !!! Kerala style gravy prepared using Cassava / Tapioca with rich flavours of fresh grated coconut ,roasted coconut and coconut oil.

In Kerala, ERISSERY is usually prepared using Raw Plantain, green Moong beans and coconut. I tried this popular recepie with kassava in a innovative way and was a success.
