The only hard job of making this chips at home is chopping and peeling. With the normal and regular peeler, you have to peel the tapioca twice before slicing it. First, peel off the brown skin and peel again to remove the white outer skin. Once you peeled the both skins, you can feel the moisture oozing out from the tapioca. In that way, you can make sure that you have removed the skin properly. In case you have a very good peeler, both the skins might come out together. To cut the tapioca, use sharp knife. It will do the job effortlessly. Make this crispy and delicious snack at home and enjoy!!

1Wash the tapioca and peel the skin with the help of a peeler. You have to peel both the brown skin and the white skin. If you are using a very good peeler, both skins may come off together. Otherwise first peel the brown skin and again peel the tapioca to remove the white outer skin. Now, wash these peeled tapioca to remove all dirt. To handle them easily, I usually cut the tapioca into two then wash it.

NOTES

Fry the chips till it gets golden color not brown or dark brown. If you fry them longer, chips will be hard to eat.

Season the chips still they are warm. So that chilli powder and salt stick together with the chips well. You can also season them batch by batch immediately after frying.

Be careful when you cut the tapioca. It will be very hard and good sharp knife will do the job perfectly.

Instead of frying these chips in match stick shape, you can also fry them by slicing them into thin round slices.

Adjust chilli powder according to your spice level.

Though it is tough to cut them into uniform sticks, try to cut them as much as possible in uniform sizes. It helps to fry the chips evenly.
