Ingredients
  

  • 2 fresh tapioca roots or yuca
  • oil for deep frying
  • salt to taste
  • red chili powder

Instructions
 

  • To make tapioca chips, let us start by cutting the fresh tapioca.
  • Slice off about 1/2-inch from each end of the tapioca root.  Now with a knife, remove the brown skin on the top.
  • At this point of time, you will find it to be dirty, so clean it well under running water.
  • Now using a vegetable slicer or a mandolin, slice into thin circles.  This procedure is just as we do for potato chips.
  • Spread them on a kitchen towel or on an absorbent paper to drain the excess moisture.
  • Heat oil in a pan.  When the oil is hot enough, carefully drop the slices into the hot oil.  Fry them in batches till they turn lightly brown and crisp.  Using a slotted spoon, remove them from hot oil and place on an absorbent paper to drain the excess oil.  Sprinkle salt and chili powder on top.  Mix well.
  • Once cool, store the tapioca chips in an air-tight container and serve with evening tea or coffee.
