Tapioca is sweet and astringent but it’s ultimate effect is light and drying. A food best eaten in moderation during the fall as it is less helpful for Vatas. Excellent for Pitta and Kapha seasons and body types.
Tapioca pearls are a novel food to most people but once they’ve tasted this khichadi, there is no turning back.
Sweet & Astringent tapioca is starchy and energy giving. Its combined with roasted & ground peanuts, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves and small bits of creamy potatoes making it something that can pretty much be eaten with eagerness and gusto at any time of the day.
One thing to remember is to not eat this khichadi in combination with any grains.
