Kappa Mutta–Scrambled eggs with spiced yuca

Kappamutta is the malayalam name of this dish. Malayalam is the language of Kerala. ‘Kappa’ means Yuca and ‘Mutta’ means egg. Hence this dish is Scrambled eggs with spiced Yuca. It’s a traditional dish that you’ll find in the roadside eateries in Kerala. I love the different textures in this dish. The soft scrambled eggs along with  the spiced and crispy yuca is heavenly.


Yuca-1 medium peeled and boiled
Eggs-5(beaten well)
Coconut oil-3 tbsp
