Ellum Kappayum

Today I am sharing kappa Biryani, a.k.a tapioca Biryani. It is a delicacy from my home state Kerala. It is cooked with beef bones (and flesh) and tapioca. The prefered meat is beef,especially the breast bone, but here I’ve used ribs. Also called ellum kappa and kappayum Irachi this is a delicacy to all who have eaten it.
