I was supposed to have a cooking lesson from my students yesterday, but they got caught up in some sort of program on campus. (My students only have “free time” for a few hours on Saturday afternoon.) Thankfully, my roommate jumped in and showed me how it’s done!
Fufu is created by boiling cassava and plantains, and then pounding them together into a doughy ball. Fufu is served with several kinds of soup, my favorite being “light soup” which is a tomato and onion broth.
I have seen people pounding fufu before, and they always make it look effortless. Well, I found out today just how much effort goes into fufu preparations! I had a really good time, and I’m glad that I learned. Though I can’t imagine being able to do all of this by myself.
