Tapioca

Tapioca, or cassava as the plant is more properly known, apparently originated in South America, but it is now an important agricultural crop for many countries around the world, including Thailand, where the fresh roots are known as mun tet and the processed ‘pearls’ used in desserts are called sagoo. The plant itself is rather unprepossessing in looks. It’s the large tuberous roots, looking something like an oversize yam, that are the cash crop.
