How to Make Cassava Roti

Cassava Roti is another favorite of West Indians. Very easy to make and delicious.


  • 2 lbs flour
  • 1 lb cassava (yucca)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Touch of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon oil
  • Flour for dusting
  • 2 cups water


Peel cassava (yucca) and wash. Shred the cassava using a Grater. Do not blend.

Add flour, baking powder and salt.

Kneed the mixture while adding water a little at a time. Kneed until mixture is like a bread dough.

Form final mixture into balls a little larger than tennis balls.

Dust a flat surface with flour and roll the balls flat across it using a Rolling Pin.

The final product must be about 1/2 cm thick and circular like a plate.

Place pan on medium fire and allow to heat. Brush pan with oil and place roti on it.

Base the top of roti with oil and allow to cook forĀ 50 to 60 seconds.

Flip and cook for 40 – 50 more secs.

Remove and place on a plate.

Great with Curry, especially Shrimp Curry.
