How to make Kuchi Chips | Tapioca Chips

Kuchi Chips, a delicious and crunchy snack made from the tapioca roots which is also known as "Kappa" or "cassava". It's one of the easiest chips that you can make at home and also they are super delicious & addictive. 

If you have been following me for a while, you might be already know how much i like tapioca. Simple steamed tapioca with a lot of coconut with basic coconut oil tempering is my all time favorite and usually make it for breakfast or as snack in the evening. 

If you haven't cooked tapioca before, i would recommend to try this steamed tapioca first ! 

Next to the steamed tapioca, this kuchi chips is my next favorite to make with tapioca. It tastes so great with a cup of hot chai so i usually make it as tea snacks. 

But you can make this in large batch , it stores well for days at room temperature and comes handy when you need some snack to munch on !
