Fufu/ Foufou
Very popular across West Africa, fufu is a special meal made up of a mixture of different flavours, including cassava, cornmeal, green plantain, yam, and/or semolina. Some people boil the starchy food whole and then mash or pound them into a dumpling-like consistency, while others use flours made from one or more of these ingredients. Swallowed instead of chewed, fufu is served with soup.
