|Accra cassava and pepper sauce|
Accra cassava popular street food in the Republic of Guinea and are known as kouti. They are crunchy on the outside and chewy inside. Fresh off the pan, the crunch is crackling – it fades as it cools down. So best enjoyed hot or warm.
These deep fried cassava fritters can be made with only 2 ingredients-Cassava and salt or you can include overly ripe bananas to sweeten things up. I have a sweet tooth –Now you know.
Frozen grated cassava is available in most Asian or Pilipino markets or even Hispanic markets. If you can’t find them grated, you can get the frozen or fresh cassava and blend- finely.
- Squeeze your grated cassava very well to avoid a bitter taste after. ( you can squeeze and let it stay over night.
- Blend your banana well and mix with the cassava.
- Add a pinch of salt for better taste.
- Mix, cut to desired shapes and fry.
- Fry in low heat so it can get ready right to the inside.
This is often served as a snack, side dish and more often with African pepper sauce.
Serve, and enjoy.
