These pastries are always deep fried. I toast them (or you can bake at 350 degree F) to make them healthier.
. 1 medium casava (yucca root)
. 1/4 teaspoon tumeric power
. 1/4 teaspoon paprika (optional)
. 1 teaspoon salt
. 3 teaspoon maple syrup (or sugar)
. 1 teaspoon oil
. 2 tablespoons rice flour
. 1 hot pepper, minced (or more to taste)
1. Peel the casava, split into 4 pieces length wise, remove the stringy thing in the middle, cubed.2. Grind casava in a food processor3. Mix everything in a bowl, shap like an orange section or a thumb.
4. Arrange in a single layer on a greased baking toast pan, brush each piece with oil.
