What is Fried Cassava?

Tapioca and Mhogo are other names for cassava. This is among my favourite ways to make crispy hot deep-fried cassava (Tapioca).

Friend Cassava Recipe Ingredients

  • 500 grams peeled and diced cassava
  •  add salt as necessary
  •  fresh coriander
  •  a dash of turmeric
  •  1/4 teaspoon garlic paste
  •  2-4 tablespoons gram besan\flour
  •  chilli powder


To prepare fried cassava, you need to cut the cassava into bite-sized pieces, washed, and boiled with coriander stems, salt, a sprinkle of turmeric, as well as garlic paste till halfway done.

Please place them in a colander to drain and cool somewhat.

Then, place the pieces on a platter and brush with gram flour and cayenne pepper. Fry for several minutes in heated oil until golden. Remove from heat, drain excess oil, and dish with tamarind soup or lemon!

When you take a bite into the fried cassavas, they should be very crispy on the surface and melt-in-your-mouth cotton soft on the inside.
