So, what is api?

Api is a traditional ingredient in Brazilian cuisine, made from cassava starch and boiled until smooth. The resulting dough is then shaped into small logs or balls before being dried in the sun. Commonly used in desserts such as pudding, api has a distinct taste that is both sweet and earthy, with a texture similar to that of polenta. It can also be used as a thickener for soups and stews, and its versatility has earned it a place in many households across Brazil. With its unique flavor and cultural significance, api is a must-try for any food enthusiast looking to explore the diverse landscape of Brazilian cuisine.
