  1. One large yucca root (cassava)
  2. Vegetable oil, for frying
  3. Salt, to taste
  4. Optional: any preferred seasoning or spices (e.g., paprika, garlic powder, etc.)


  1. Peel the yucca: Start by cutting off the ends of the yucca root with a sharp knife. Then, use a vegetable peeler or a knife to remove the thick, waxy skin from the yucca. Make sure to remove all the brown outer layer to reveal the white flesh inside.

  2. Cut the yucca into fry shapes: Slice the yucca root in half lengthwise, and then cut each half into long, thin strips, just like you would cut regular potato fries. You can adjust the thickness according to your preference, but aim for relatively uniform sizes to ensure even cooking.

  3. Boil the yucca: Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add the yucca fries to the boiling water and cook for about 5-7 minutes until they are partially cooked but still firm. This step helps to soften the yucca and speeds up the frying process.

  4. Drain and cool: Drain the partially cooked yucca fries in a colander and let them cool down for a few minutes. This will help remove excess moisture from the surface, making them crispier when fried.

  5. Preheat the oil: In a deep fryer or a large, heavy-bottomed pot, add enough vegetable oil to submerge the yucca fries completely. Preheat the oil to around 350°F (175°C). If you don't have a thermometer, you can test the oil readiness by adding a small piece of yucca; it should sizzle immediately without burning.

  6. Fry the yucca: Carefully add the yucca fries to the hot oil in batches to avoid overcrowding the fryer. Fry them for about 3-5 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Stir them occasionally during frying to ensure even cooking.

  7. Drain and season: Using a slotted spoon, remove the fried yucca fries from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Immediately sprinkle them with salt and any other desired seasoning while they are still hot.

  8. Serve and enjoy: Yucca fries are best enjoyed immediately while they are still hot and crispy. Serve them as a delicious side dish or a snack, and optionally pair them with your favorite dipping sauce or salsa.
Enjoy your homemade yucca fries!
