Pichi-Pichi (Steamed Cassava)

One of the traditional Filipino dessert is Pichi-Pichi. It is made with grated cassava or cassava flour, water and sugar. This is one of the easiest Filipino dessert to cook.

One of my favourites!


* 2 cups of grated cassava or cassava flour

* 2 cups of brown sugar

* 2 cups of pandan water (boiled pandan leaves)

* 1 cup of grated coconut

Cooking procedure:

1. Mix cassava, pandan and brown sugartogether.

2. Stir well and pour into a heat proof bowl or an aluminum used for steaming.

3. Steam for 40 minutes.

4. The know if the steamed pichi-pichi is cooked, the better way is to taste it.

5. Let it cool and cut into serving size pieces. Roll each piece in grated coconut.

Note: If in your area you can't find Pandan Leaves, you can buy pandan extract from a supermarket. The equivalent is 2 cups of water and half tsp. of pandan extract.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome.
