I bet after reading this post you are going to rush your nearest store to buy the ingredients for this incredible Farali Cassava and Peanut Stir fry. It is so good! But let me tell you that to prepare this stir fry you won’t need so many exotic spices and you sure don’t have to spend extra time in the kitchen as this comes together in a tick, just don’t let the fasting season go by without trying this amazing dish!
In this recipe, boiled cassava (a.k.a. Mogo in Swahili or yucca in South America) is cooked in an aromatic tempering with cumin seeds, green chillies, curry leaves and garnished with generous amount of fresh coriander leaves and definitely, the addition of the roasted peanuts are a highlight and takes it on to another level.
It’s the perfect dish to try it out on any fasting day. This recipe shines on its own and doesn’t need anything on the side!
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.
When I prepared the first time, Potato and peanut Stir fry, he asked me to prepare Cassava with Peanuts.
Cassava should not be eaten RAW.
If not preparing for fasting, you can add garlic and red chilli powder in this recipe.
