Cassava / Potato Donut

Cassava / Potato Donut

I usually use potato when I make home made donuts. This time I try to use cassava, as there is a little cassava in my kitchen. To have a really smooth  cassava, after cassava is steamed and mashed, then filter it with a little bit of water. We do not need a lot of water, just to get the cassava mashed out of the filter.

Try this recipe, the result is also yummm, just as we make potato donuts.
