 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/2 c Bisquick. baking mix
  • 2 1/2 c Instant potato flakes


Note: Conventional west African fufu is made by boiling such starchy foods
as cassava, yam, plantain or rice, then pounding them into a glutinous
mass, usually in a giant, wooden mortar and pestle. This adaptation for
North Americans may trouble you if you try to stick to minimally processed
foods. But it's worth trying at least once with west African groundnut

Bring 6 cups of water to a rapid boil in a large, heavy pot. combine the
two ingredients and add to the water.

Stir constantly for 10-15 minutes a process that needs two people for
best results: one to hold the pot while the other stirs vigorously with a
strong implement (such as a thick wooden spoon). The mixture will become
very thick and difficult to stir, but unless you are both vigilant and
energetic, you'll get a lumpy mess.

When the fufu is ready (or you've stirred to the limits of your
endurance!), dump about a cup of the mixture into a wet bowl and shake
until it forms itself into a smooth ball. Serve on a large platter
alongside a soup or stew.
