Print this Recipe    Fufu 03

Serves 6 - 8.

2 1/2 cups Bisquick
2 1/2 cups instant potato flakes

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.

Note: Conventional west African fufu is made by boiling starchy
foods such as cassava, yam, plantain or rice, then pounding them
into a glutenous mass, usually in a giant, wooden mortar and pestle.

Nice try, but it just isn't the real thing. :-)A good cultural experience if you've never been to Africa. Make sure you eat it with your fingers though.:-) I can't imaging what the Ghanaians would think of it.
