The foufou (fufu or foutou) is usually obtained by pounding yam, cassava or boiled plantain. But I’m going to take a shortcut: the powdered foufou flour!
Fufu (Powder) is a white fermented carbohydrate food, produced from cassava, plantain, yam. Unlike the traditional product, which is in normally obtained in wet form and highly perishable, the mechanized product is presented in dried flour form. It’s a great substitute for the pounded fufu.
4 cups of fufu flour
6 cups of water, everything depends on the consistency you want
Boil 2 cups of water and add the mixture
Cook until the liquid turns into a paste.
Test: wet your hand and touch the dough … if it sticks to your fingers, cover and cook longer.
As soon as it is cooked remove from the heat and put in a ball.
Foufoui dessi or “sauce (white) of foufou”
