Preparation of raw material

Peel fresh cassava roots, avoid using damaged ones to prevent bacterial.
Wash the tubers to remove sand and dirt.
Peel the cassava tubers and wash again in clean waters
Grate the tubers using manual cassava graters or machine.
Ferment the grated cassava if you are using a cassava with high cyanide. Do this by packing the grated cassava in a basket made from local cane or palm and leave it for 24 to 48 hours to ferment.

De-water or sieve the cassava:
The next stage is to fill the fermented cassava paste in a polypropylene sacks  and send to a pressing machine if available in your area of use a manual screw press to de-water or simply put press out water from the cassava leaving a dry press cake.
 You can achieve this by also leaving the dough in a wooden palm fiber pressing down the dough in a sack and left to dry completely and hard under the sun.


The press cake is either sun-baked or baked over a fire. Alternatively, the sifted pulp is spread into thin flat cakes and cooked on a hot griddle, turning to cook both sides and to make a hard cake. The cakes are then dried in the sun. The dried cakes can be anything from 60-90cm in diameter. Small pieces are broken off and dipped into soups and stews.

The hard dried cakes will store for several months, so long as they are kept in cool, dry conditions.
