Tandoori Mogo(cassava) and Awards!!

Cassava or Mogo I saw first when I came to U.K....my in law's introduced this to me..in the beginning I wasn't sure about it but as time passed I started to like it and now I do prepare lots of dishes out of Cassava...One of them is Tandoori Mogo,this dish I learnt from my late SIL...she used to make really delicious and tasty mogo....whenever I make mogo my husband gets very happy coz he says this mogo reminds him his childhood days in East Africa, where mogo or Cassava is staple food....I never bought a fresh Cassava, always used frozen(hate peeling the skin)........CASSAVA ROOTS AND LEAVES SHOULD NOT BE EATEN RAW....COMING TO TANDOORI MOGO

You will need:-
  • 1 packet of frozen Cassava chips
  • 750 ml Passata
  • 2 tbsp Tandoori Masala
  • 2 tsp green chillis,garlic and ginger paste
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt(beaten)
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • fresh finely chopped coriander
  • salt to taste
  • 2tsp olive oil
Method:-
Boil Cassava according to your packet instruction.(If you are using fresh boil untill cooked, not mashed).

Drain the water and let it cool. Heat oil in a pan and fry the onion untill lightly brown.  Now in a big bowl mix all the ingrediants and let it marinate for more than 2 hours.  Longer is better.  Preheat the oven to gas mark 6.  Cover with foil and let it bake for at least 50 minutes.  Ready to serve.



Enjoy it as much as my husband and daughter did!!
