Fried Yuca / Mogo and Stir Fry Yuca

I never had yuca in India. After coming to US I had it first time at my best friend's house. She is from Africa and there , this dish is very famous. It's their street food, They have stalls alongside road with fried yuca and they serve it with garlic chutney and lime juice. It's called MOGO. Since then I was hooked on to this dish. When ever she makes this , she called me and I go there and eat it. But after that I started making this. Its easy lunch or snack dish.


3 big Yuca
garlic chutney dry one
1 lime / lemon
oil to shallow fry

Cut Yuca as per your choice .
Boil the water in big pan.
Add the yuca pieces in it and boiled it for 15-20 minutes.
Take it out and put it in drainer.
When its nice and dry, heat a oil in pan. I shallow fry it but if you want you can deep fry it.
Add few pieces in it and fry it on both sides.
Take it out and put it in paper towel.
To serve this, sprinkle some chat masala and lime juice on fried mogo and take garlic chutney and add lime juice in it too.
Dip it and eat it.
I fried half and rest I made dry subji.
Heat a oil, add jeera in it. Add Yuca pieces along with red chili powder, 1 tbsp of same garlic chutney, 1 tsp of turmeric powder, salt.
Mix it and cook for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle lemon juice on it and serve it along side with roti.
