Ravitoto

Traditional Malagasy cuisine

Ravitoto ([ravˈtutʷ]) is a traditional Malagasy food. In French, Ravitoto means “crushed cassava leaves”. These are specifically sweet cassava (cassava tree) leaves pounded with a mortar or meat grinder. It is cooked with garlic and very fatty pork. In other societies, coconut milk is used instead to cook cassava leaves, like mataba in the Comoros. You can add dried fish or small shrimp, called tsivaki.
