Cocoyam fufu is a swallow made from cocoyams (also known as taro root, dasheen, yautia, eddo, and kalo).

Ingredients edit

Equipment edit

Procedure edit

  1. Cut the cocoyam into medium-sized chunks, and cook in a pot of water until tender. Drain the cocoyam.
  2. Combine the cassava flour with ½ cup water to make a mouldable ball.
  3. Add the cassava mixture to the cooked cocoyam in a mortar. Pound together until smooth.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Always use cocoyam heads to make a smooth swallow. The cassava flour serves to bind the cocoyam and make it mouldable.
