Ubi Kayu is not Malaysian staple food but this plant was famous during Japanese Occupation here during world war 2. Not because it was used as a weapon but as a staple food during the war years. But now the ubi kayu is famous for food industries as a major source of carbohydrates.
Now we still eat it occasionally and the recipe are fried, boil, fermentation or mix with other ingredient to produce a cake for example. Before potato chips are being introduce here by the Americans (I guest). Locals have ubi kayu chips.
Now the ubi kayu chips have commercial appearance. Checkout this Cassava Chips from Twisties Chipster…I just spot it at 7 Eleven..the taste is good. From the texture you know it’s ubi kayu.
