Garri is kind of edible food in West Africa countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leon, Liberia, Benin, etc. It is very popular among local foods and is indispensable in daily life. It can be used in soup or mixed with sugar, milk etc.

Garri is produced from raw cassava by the process of cleaning, washing, peeling, grating, fermentation, dewatering and frying. All the process can be finished by manual or mechanical.


Generally garri can be divided into white garri and yellow garri. By normal process, you can get white garri. But if you add palm oil in frying process, you can get yellow garri.
