Bammy = a pancake shaped, deep-fried cassava bread, which is aid to originate with the Arawaks Indians. Bammy is commonly served with fried fish. A Jamaican flatbread that is very similar to a pancake. Bammy bread is made from grated cassava root that is pressed in a cloth to remove the liquid juice, then mixed with salt, formed into a small round shape, and placed on a baking sheet. The cassava is pressed down to decrease the thickness of the bread and is then baked on both sides, as the pancake-like bread is turned over once while baking. This bread is most often served as an accompaniment to fried fish or other fried foods.
