Recipe of the Day: Jamaican Bammy

The Bammy is a popular Jamaican starch that is well known because it goes great with the national dish, Ackee and Saltfish. Today we give the extra simple recipe for this side dish, it will be the easiest thing you have ever made in your life, not even water has this few ingredients (lol). Check it out below.

Ingredients

For 1 Dozen(s) ()

  • 2 pound(s) cassava
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt

Bammy Directions

Peel and grate cassava.  Place it in a muslin cloth, wring out and discard the juice.

Add salt to the cassava flour and mix together.

Heat bammy griddle or fry pan over moderate heat.  Place about 1 cup of the mixture in a bammy ring on the heated griddle, if not, place on a greased shallow baking or fry pan.  Press down on the mixture to flatten.  A regular bammy should be at least (6″) or 15 cm in diameter, or made according to desired size.

When the edges shrinks slightly from the side of the pan, turn over and cook the other side.  Each bammy should cook in 10 minutes.

Repeat the process until all the bammies are made.  Bammies may be stored in a cool dry place or freeze until needed.

Note: When bammies are ready to be used, soak them in milk or water for about 10 minutes.  Bammies may be fried or baked and served with your favourite protein.

Muslin Cloth: Fine delicately woven cotton fabric.
