About Veg Kozhikal Recipe:

Veg kozhikal is a street food generally obtainable in the Kannur's Thalassery area and is also an ideal evening snack to pair up with tea. The word kozhikal is made up of two words where 'kozhi' implies chicken and 'kal' suggest leg; hence the meaning is chicken leg. Don't worry vegetarians, as this recipe does not include tapioca (pure veg) chicken. Do you like spicy snacks? Then it's a must-try recipe for you. This tangy, crisp masala-covered fried tapioca goes well with tea or coffee. If you reside near the Thalassery bus stand, you must have seen people around the street food shops with kozhikal and a cup of tea in their hands. Its smell will make you feel like buying or having one right there.
