  • 1 Medium Size Cassava
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1-2 tbsp Oil for Shallow Frying (one can use Butter too)


  • Peel and Grate the Cassava
  • In a cheese cloth or clean kitchen cloth, squeeze the juice of the grated cassava.
  • In a large bowl mix it well along with salt.
  • Divide the mixture into equal size portions, I got 3 and press the mixture between your palms to form a pattice (flatten dough).
  • Heat a pan to medium, drizzle some oil, and shallow fry them on both the sides for 5-6 minutes or until golden.
  • One can keep them aside for later use, or can use it immediately.
  • Dip the bammy's in coconut milk and let it soak for 15-20 minutes.

  • Remove and slightly pat them dry unto a napkin, I just removed the excess milk and shallow fried it again on both the sides.
  • Serve Warm.
