Servings 20 people
- 2 cups grated cassava
- 1 cup sugar
- 1¾ cups water
- 2 tsp baking soda solution
coating and topping
- 1 cup grated coconut
- 1 cup grated cheese
In a bowl, put all the ingredients together and mix thoroughly.
Fill individual cup molds about three-quarter full or a bit more but leave some space because it can rise a bit while steaming.
Arrange the filled molds in a steamer and steam for about 40-60 minutes or until they become translucent.
Let them cool down completely so it is easier to remove from the molds, or place them in the fridge to shorten the cooling time.
Roll each Pichi Pichi in grated coconut or grated cheese.
