Cassava (Monihot escaulenta Crantz) is a staple food in South India and contributes significantly to ttie world food supply. This crop ranks second next to potato in the tuber crop production in India. Cassava has a short shelf life and therefore processing is essential. Subramanyan reported that flour can be made into porridge by mixing with water. Some times it is mixed with ice before cooking.
