Garri processing line
Garri (also known as garry, gali, manioc, mandioca, yuca, yucca root, cassava or tapioca) is a popular West African food made from cassava tubers.
Process of making garri :
1. To make garri, cassava tubers are washed,peeled and grated or crushed to produce a mash.
2. The mash is placed in a porous bag and weights are placed on the bag for one to two days or more to press excess water and starch out. By day three, the cassava will lose a good amount of a water and become dry enough for the next step.
3. It is then sieved (or sifted) and fried in an extra large clay frying pot with or without palm oil.
4. The resulting dry granular garri can be stored for long periods. It may be pounded or ground to make a fine flour.
Garri can be eaten without further cooking, as a snack, by placing it in a bowl and adding cold water; ijebu-garri is made to have finer grains, and a pleasantly sour taste, making it very suitable for consumption in this way. Sugar or honey is then added as well as chunks of coconut, groundnuts, tigernuts and cashew nuts. Milk may also be added.
