This is a very popular finger food of Brazil like French fries. Mandioca is a root vegetable from which cassava flour and tapioca is made.

Salt for taste
Oil for frying

1. Wash and peel the mandioca and boil it preferably in a pressure cooker as it takes a longer time in a pan.
2. Remove from the water and let it cool.
3. Cut into pieces or long strips and sprinkle salt over them
4. Deep fry until crisp.
