I'm working on a project. And what is this project? Its learning how to make perfect fufu. Thank goodness for noise nuisance laws in this country, I'm protected from having to learn to pound it with a mortar and pestle as in this video. But even preparing it from fufu flour over the cooker is still a bit of a challenge.
In Nigeria, fufu is not as commonly eaten as it is in Ghana. Gari (eba) and pounded yam (iyan) are more popular in Nigeria than fufu is. And the fufu of Nigeria is different from that of Ghana, in that, as far as I'm aware Nigerian fufu (akpu) is made entirely from fermented cassava, whereas in Ghana plantains and even cocoyams are added to the cassava paste before it is pounded. And as the lady in this video says, sometimes fufu is made from cocoyam..
