Cassava (Mogo)

In India, the people of Kerala eat cassava that has been boiled and then served with fish curry. Another traditional favourite is ‘kappa biriyani’ where the cassava is cooked with meat. Cassava also known as ‘mogo’ can also be eaten as a snack; the cassava is first peeled and then boiled in water, drained and cut into chips and fried. These ‘mogo’ chips are served either sprinkled with chilli and salt or with a tamarind sauce.
