So in my attempt to conquer at least a few recipes from the D.R., it seemed only natural that I should tackle this giant tuber.
At this point, you could stop and add a few pats of butter and have some delicious mang'ú. Or, if you are looking for an added challenge, read on.
The complete recipe can be found at Aunt Clara´s Kitchen.
(P.S. This recipe will make quite a few bollitos, so if you don´t think you can eat them all up in one night, it´s good to know that they freeze wonderfully. Just put them in an air-tight container in your freezer before the egg wash step. Then when you throw together a last-minute shin-dig, just defrost them in the microwave, batter ém, and fry ém. Easy Peasy.
Also for your gringos who can´t find yuca, (or cassava in English), you could probably substitute potatoes and achieve a similar result)
