1 package frozen grated cassava
1 ½ cup water
1 – 1½ cup sugar (to your taste)
1 tbsp lye
frozen grated coconut thawed
- Mix all the ingredients well in a mixing bowl except the grated coconut.
- Put the mixture in a square microwave safe dish and cook on high for 20 – 30 minutes or until the center sets or thickened.
- Remove from the microwave (be very careful in handling since it will be hot & steamy.)
- Let it cool.
- Using a soup spoon (to make small balls), scoop the pitsi-pitsi out from the dish and roll it in the grated coconut.
- It is so yummy when eaten warm and the longer they sit the better tasting it will be.
- I even freeze some for later cravings. 🙂
