History of the Cassava Manioc

Cassava, also known as manioc, is a staple in many tropical regions around the world. Indigenous to South America, it has traversed continents to find its place in Mauritian cuisine. Cassava Manioc Pudding is a testament to the cultural diversity of our island nation, with its roots embedded deeply in Mauritian history.

A Journey into Mauritian Cuisine

Our Cassava Manioc Pudding is more than just a dessert—it's a journey through the diverse Mauritian culinary landscape. A mixture of cassava and coconut, this pudding is a sublime balance of savory and sweet flavors that capture the essence of our beautiful island.

The Ingredients

To prepare the Cassava Manioc Pudding, we need:

  • 500g of Cassava

  • 1/2 a Coconut (grated)

  • 1 cup of Sugar

  • 1/2 cup of Condensed Milk

  • 1/2 cup of Almond Essence

Each ingredient has a role to play, contributing to the symphony of flavors that define this unique dessert. The cassava provides the structure and starchiness, the coconut adds a touch of tropical flair, the sugar and condensed milk contribute to the sweetness, and the almond essence adds a hint of nuttiness that rounds everything off.

Cooking the Cassava Manioc Pudding

Let's embark on the cooking journey. It begins with peeling and grating the cassava. Once grated, it's time to add the grated coconut, sugar, condensed milk, and almond essence. Once all these ingredients are mixed together, we steam the mixture until it is firm and fully cooked. The final result is a delicious pudding that is sure to make your taste buds sing.
