  Corn Flour for FuFu
by janiebaxter

FuFu is a staple food made by pounding root vegetables in a pestle and mortar until they are finely ground into flour and then boiling the vegetable until it forms a gloopy lump. Sounds awful but it's actually quite pleasant, certainly no worse than potatoes.
It is served with spicy stew or a tasty sauce and eaten with the right hand.
FuFu is made from whatever root crop is grown locally. Popular types of FuFu are corn, yams, cassava or rice.
