I love tapioca, I love the flavour and the richness of it. We often just season the tapioca with spices and have it with a chilli chutney. I also add it to samosas and have it. But this one makes it even more tasty and takes it to the next level. The crushed garlic and chillies add a new dimension to this. So try it and let me know how it turns out...
