Steam Cassava with Coconut Flakes

Happy American Thanksgiving! If you link to my stats, at the bottom of the page, you'll notice that Americans view my blog most. So this recipe is for the Canadian neighbours.

I've posted Baked Cassava Dessert Squares but here is the steam version. The presentation is a little different because steamed cassava results to a soft and sticky texture. Therefore, it is necessary to toss the steam cassava squares in coconut flakes to keep the squares separated.

Dessert Recipe: Steam Cassava with Coconut Flakes :
1 batch coconut cassava recipe
Thai Lao stainless steel steamer
coconut flakes

Make a batch of coconut cassava recipe and pour into a baking dish. Add 2 ½ inches water into Thai and Lao steamer bottom pot. Place a steaming layer over the bottom pot. Place baking dish of cassava inside steaming layer. Place lid over steaming layer. Place steamer over maximum heat and steam cassava for 30 minutes. Cool then cut into squares. Toss the cassava squares into coconut flakes and place onto serving platter.

I have a little problem. The top part was firm but the bottom part of the cassava was too sticky and soft. I don't know why.
