As far as I can tell, cassava is used in a lot more creative ways in Latin America than I have encountered in West Africa. These stuffed cassava fritters are just one proof of that. They wonderfully combine the crunchy texture of breaded cassava with a well-seasoned filling that manages to both pop and melt with every bite. (I slightly boiled the yuca before grating it). The fritters are great appetizers, or snacks. They could even be served as a meal accompanied with a green salad.
