Manioc (cassava drops)

Manioc (Cassava Drops) Recipe


  • 2 lbs of peeled and grated manioc (cassava)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup of corn or tapioca flour
  • Oil for frying


  1. Peel and grate 2 lbs of manioc (cassava) and place it in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add 1 tsp of salt and 1/4 cup of corn or tapioca flour to the grated manioc and mix well.
  3. Heat oil in a deep pan or a deep fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  4. Using your hands, take small portions of the mixture and shape them into small, flattened balls.
  5. Carefully drop the balls of manioc mixture into the hot oil and fry them until they are golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove the manioc drops from the oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate to remove any excess oil.
  7. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Note: If the mixture is too wet to shape into balls, you can add more flour to the mixture. If the mixture is too dry, you can add a little bit of water to make it more pliable.
