In my family we all love Mogo and we love peanuts and putting them together I can never go wrong as I know that this dish will vanish in no time. Cassava or Mogo, makes my dad nostalgic and brings lots of memories of his childhood days in Uganda, East Africa.

For every Brit-Asian who is originally from Africa, gets a twinkle in their eye when Mogo is mentioned. According to him and his family, Mogo is a staple carb and was available in abundance and quite cheap too, just the way we get potatoes here.

They used to indulge in deep-fried Mogo chips with Gujarati Imli Chutney  the more you eat the more hungry you got for it.
