Masala Mogo (vegan)

Recipe Description:

You might wonder what soy sauce is doing in a recipe with ‘masala’ in the name, but there’s over a century of tradition behind this kind of ‘Desi-Chinese’ food. Originating in Kolkata, home of India’s only Chinatown, it’s a cuisine that has grown recently into an international phenomenon, beloved for its mix of Chinese techniques and styles with Indian ingredients and spices. ‘Mogo’ is the Indian name for cassava, a starchy root vegetable resembling the potato, but with more tropical flair. Often a simple side dish in Desi-Chinese restaurants, when cooked with pepper and tomato in our umami-rich chilli sauce, it proves more than worthy of a main role.
