Malagasy Ravitoto (Cassava leaf dish)

Malagasy Ravitoto (Cassava leaf dish)

The Ravitoto dish, which is a staple of the coastal and highland communities of the island and one of the most well-known dishes in Malagasy cuisine, is engrained in local culinary customs. Early Austronesian settlers brought the dish's main component, cassava leaves, to Madagascar. As this component was modified throughout time by the Malagasy people, they developed their distinct version of the dish.
