Doris made some Cassava Strips for dessert. Doris served the Cassava Strips Dessert with a Coconut Milk Topping called Nuoc Dua in Vietnamese.
The Cassava Strips is lightly chewy. According to Doris, the authentic Cassava Strips should be rolled in freshly grated coconut which is more moist than those store-bought grated coconut.
Doris is so sweet that she also brought some Vietnamese coffee to share with us. Doris had just return from Vietnam and the coffee is 100% Vietnamese coffee. This bag of 1kg ground coffee costs about CAD10. Vietnamese coffee is strong and best serve with condensed milk.
Ingredients for Cassava Strips:
- 2 packs of frozen grated cassava
- 5 ounces coconut milk
- 1 cup sugar
- a dash of vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 cup water
- 4 tablespoons glutinous rice flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
Ingredients for Coconut Milk Topping (Nuoc Dua):
- 1 can coconut milk
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

thanks for this recipe! enjoyed eating this growing up and haven’t had itin so long!
OMG I love cassava chewy desserts such as Filipino PichiPichi. Thanks for sharing this recipe~
Would you please specific the amount being used in the recipe”
1) how much by weight/volume is in a pack of frozen grated cassava?
2) You have everything by cup size, so is “5 ounces coconut milk” in fluid oz? or by weight? then how much is in cup?
3) What size is a “1 can coconut milk”? Can it be in “cup” size?
Please if you post more recipes, be consider that ingredients in the market comes in all kinds of measurement and sizes. Using “cup” size is more common than using “weight” for measuring because not every one at home has a kitchen scale. “Can” size is the worse especially one can buy a 2 liter Can coconut milk in a supermarket!
1) The frozen grated cassava is usually packed in 1 pound package.
2) 5 oz of coconut milk is close to 2/3 cup.
3) 1 can of coconut milk that we usually find in Vancouver is 398ml.
Hope the answers clarify the confusion.
Thanks for clearing it up. Now I can try the recipe.
