Carrot fufu is a swallow made from carrot, common in Nigeria due to its low carbohydrate content. It is easy to make once the carrot is blended smoothly.

Special equipment edit

Procedure edit

  1. Blend the chopped carrot until smooth.
  2. Transfer the carrot to cheesecloth, and squeeze out all the water from the carrot paste.
  3. Cook the carrot pulp in a pot over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the psyllium husk to thicken and bind the fufu.

Notes, tips, and variations edit
