Cassava is also known as Tapioca or Mhogo. This recipe is one of my favourite ways of preparing crispy spicy deep fried cassava.
- 500 gm cassava, peeled and cubed
- salt as needed
- fresh coriander
- pinch of turmeric
- 1/4 tsp. garlic paste
- 2-4 tbsp gram flour/besan
- chilli powder
Cut your cassava into bite sized pieces, wash and then boil with some salt, coriander stems, a tiny pinch of turmeric n garlic paste until its halfway done.
Remove into a colander and let them dry and cool a little bit.
Then spread the pieces out on a plate n sprinkle with some gram flour and chilli powder. Fry in hot oil for a few minutes until perfectly golden. Remove, blot out excess oil and serve hot with tamarind sauce or lemon!
They should turn out super crispy on the outside and melt-in-mouth cotton soft when you bite into them.
