Yam 'Fufu'

  • Peel the Yam tube and cut it into fist sized pieces. Wash thoroughly to get all the sand off.

  • Place on a pot, add enough water to cover the Yam and boil. Boil until a fork goes through easily and the yam is fluffy. Drain off the water but keep covered to retain the heat.

  • Wash the fufu Mortar and pestle with warm water.

  • Place the hot pieces of Yam into the Mortar, one at a time and pound them into a fluffy powdery mass before adding the next piece.

  • When half the pieces have been added, start to turn the yam which should be getting sticky by now, with your right hand.

  •  Alternate you hand movements with the pestle hits, to form some sort of tick-tock rhythm.

  • When the yam mass is sticky enough to be shaped into a ball, it is ready, although, some people like their's really soft in which case you would keep pounding till the desired softness.

  • Serve yam fufu with goat light soup.
