Kappa Matar Pattice/ Tapioca Green Pease Pattice

My first introduction to Tapioca that is Kappa was made by my Malayali friend 'GEO'. She gave me Boiled Kappa with some tamarind chutney. It was so yummy. I wanted to try out something from Tapioca but I was very sure that my husband will not like that simple boiled tapioca. I made some green Pease stuffed pattice (you can call it as tikki too.) from it. And no wonder he and his friends like it a lot. Now this will be my one of the fresh snack item on Diwali.
Ingredients
Boiled Tapioca - 500 grams.
Green Pease - 1 cup
Green chilli+ ginger + Garlic + cumin paste - 4 teaspoon
Coriander leaves - 2-3 teaspoon
Corn Starch - 4-5 tablespoon
lemon juice - 2 teaspoon
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Oil for shallow fry.
Salt to taste


Procedure
Remove the outer cover of tapioca and grate it in a bowl. Add 2 teaspoon of green paste, chopped coriander and salt. Knead it. Coarsely grind green Pease in a mixer. For the stuffing heat 1 teaspoon oil and green paste and saute it. Then add crushed green Pease, salt, sugar and lemon juice and mix well. Cook it for 2-3 minutes. Let it get cool properly. Now put some oil to your palm because tapioca is very sticky. Make a small ball of tapioca mixture. Spread it in your palm like puri. Place little portion of matar stuffing in a centre, gather in the edges and roll into a ball. Press it to a tikki shape. Similarly make remaining patties. Sprinkle some corn starch over the patties so that the shape is retained. Gently keep them into the hot oil frying pan and shallow-fry on medium heat till crisp and lightly browned from both sides. Serve hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
