CAN I USE TAPIOCA FLOUR TO MAKE THIS RECIPE?

Unfortunately, No! The main ingredient is the root. The flour or starch cannot substitute for this recipe.

You may use frozen grated cassava if you can’t find fresh cassava. If using frozen cassava, squeeze out the liquid from the defrosted grated cassava before use. You can also use frozen shredded coconut. Desiccated coconut doesn’t work well for this recipe.

CAN I USE OTHER SIZE OF STEAMING PAN?

You can use any type of steaming pan as long as it fits into the Varoma dish.
