Fufu Recipe

Fufu is a staple across Africa, there are many varieties of it;  it can be made with bananas, Cassavas, Yams, corn meal or semolina.

Very often, I receive requests from people on how to make fufu, the easiest way; so in this post I’m going to demonstrate it for you all that are struggling with this recipe.


Ingredients:

The ratio is:

2 cups of fufu powder for 4 cups of water.

You can found Fufu powder in all varieties in local African food stores.

Fufu banana is traditionally made by pounding the bananas but now you can get the powder on the market too.

Direction:

Step 1:  bring the water to boil and  then remove 1 and half cup of the hot  and set aside.

Step 2: Add the fufu powder while mixing vigorously . Then pour in the remaining water and mix well.

If you have a friend around, ask him to hold the pot for you while you are kneading the fufu until smooth.

This step require all your strength and it may take up to 10 min.

If you are alone, then the easiest way is to beat the fufu on the ground near a wall.

Step 3: when the fufu is smooth and elastic, mold it with the use of a deep spoon.

It can be served with soup or stew.

“FUFU! One of my favorite dish of Africa I just love it. With palm nut soup, smoke fish and some crabs in it, Hmmm! Just a TASTE OF HEAVEN. I have been cooking it this way for as long as I can remember. My philosophy is that, since you have to eat. You might as well eat the food that that you love. There is no other person better suited than oneself to do it right. But than again, you have to have the right teacher...... You always come up with the good stuff. MERCI ET A BIENTOT.
