Neo Cassava

Hot and Sour Tamarind Cassava

Ingredients
800g cassava, peeled, cubed and boiled until al dente (or just boil some frozen cassava and cut it into pieces- Guess which one I did…)
1 ½ tsp ginger, minced
5 hot green chillies, minced (or according to taste)
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
6-8 curry leaves
1 tbsp sunflower oil
2 tsp cumin seeds
¼ tsp asafoetida (optional)
1 ½ tbsp concentrated tomato puree
5 cups hot water
2 tsp tamarind pulp
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste (to balance the hot and sour)
¼ cup coriander leaves, chopped
¼ cup spring onions, chopped (optional)
Plus crushed Bombay mix, crushed potato chips/crisps, peanuts, extra chilli etc according to your liking.

Method
1. In a jug or bowl, whisk together the hot water, tamarind pulp and tomato paste. Set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a large pan and add the cumin seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida, ginger, garlic and chillies. Sauté until aromatic.
3. Add the tamarind/tomato water to the pan and allow to simmer for 3 minutes.
4. Add the cassava pieces and boil for a further 10 minutes. Season with salt and sugar and remember to keep tasting it. Remove from the heat and allow to stand for 10-15 minutes. By this time the starch from the cassava should have slightly thickened the sauce. If not, remove 4-5 pieces of cassava, mash them and re-add them to the pan and stir thoroughly.
5. Add the chopped coriander and serve with all of your favourite toppers.
The dish is perfect for lunch or a light dinner on a hot summer day!
Two words…
Make. This.

Cassava croquettes

The word torreja in Peru isn’t the same than torrija, a fried slice of bread. Torreja is a dish similar to croquette (or croqueta in spanish). Usually the first is used for a deep fried mix of vegetables, flour and eggs; the second includes meat, usually beef. We’ll use “croquettes” for both. With this recipe, you’ll get enough cassava croquettes for 6 people.

Ingredients:

* 1 cup of yellow chili/pepper sauce (or less, if you don’t want it to be so spicy)
* 3 tablespoons of shallots, chopped (the green part)
* 1 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
* 1 tablespoon of lime juice
* 2 eggs
* 1 kg (2.2 lb) of cassava, cooked and pressed
* 1 tablespoon of butter
* 1/2 cup of mozzarella in small pieces
* 1/2 cup of corn kernels, cooked
* 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro
* 3/4 cup of flour
* Salt
* Pepper

Preparation:

Mix the yellow chili/pepper sauce with the shallots, one tablespoon of oil and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and keep back.

Beat slightly the eggs and mix with the cassava and butter. Season with salt and add the mozzarella, corn and cilantro. Mix and form the croquettes. Flour them.

Pour the rest of the oil in a frying pan on a medium flame and fry the croquettes until they get browned. Remove from the flame and put over an absorbent paper. Serve the croquettes with a little of sauce.
