This is a photo of Naomi in the Video City Hotel in Mampong, Ghana making Fufu.
Fufu is made from Cassava and Plantains, or with Yams. It is an exciting food because they use this large straight wooden mallet to mash the Cassava and Plantains into food to eat.
They will eat the mashed Cassava and Plantains called Fufu with a ground sauce made of Tomatoes and Peppers.
The process of making Fufu by my interpretation and the understanding as of today is listed, however, this may change as the Fufu culture unfolds.
1. Growing of Plantains and Cassava together in the field plot.
2. Boiling of the Cassava or Yams
3. Mashing of the Cassava and Plantains, the exciting part, or sometimes Yams.
4. Grinding of Tomatoes, Pepper and making the sauces.
5. Eating the Fufu by plucking with fingers and dipping into the sauce.
Fufu One Video
I am in Bolgatanga, Ghana presently and have now traveled too far north for the proper growing of Plantains. The locals have almost stopped eating Fufu, therefore I have decided to publish this video with very good clips of the exciting part. I hope to add later a more completed story, but for now, a very exciting Fufu video if you want to call Fufu exciting.
