You can watch the short video for visual instructions.To peel the yuca root, start by cutting off both ends. If the root has a thin peel (like mine had), simply use a peeler. If not, then make a thin slice down the length of the root. You can then dig a finger underneath the peel and peel it away by hand.
Slice the yuca root into sticks: Cut it into 3 to 4-inch-long sections and then slice it into batons/wedges (refer to images/video in the post).
Soak in cold water for about 5 minutes, then drain the water.
Boil the sticks in plenty of fresh salted water for about 20 minutes, or until fork-tender.
Drain the water very well (optionally pat-dry with a kitchen towel), then add the cooked yuca sticks to a large bowl together with all other ingredients.
Toss to combine until well coated.
Cook it (air fryer method)
Finally, transfer the fries to your air fryer basket in a single layer, with space in between (cook in batches if necessary). Depending on the thickness of the yuca fries, cook at 380 °F (190 °C) for about 15-18 minutes or, until golden brown and crispy.Check the recipe notes below for the oven and skillet method.
