    How long do you cook it? How hot should the oil be? I followed the recipe and it isn’t coming out crispy.

      Cooking time depends on the type of tapioca used. Cook till it is soft but stiff. Do not overcook. I am not using any oil in this recipe. If you have any doubts, please refer to the detailed cooking video given at the end of the recipe.
