Hello sweet team, welcome back to my channel. This is Sweet Adjeley. How do you like your fufu? Do you like it hard, soft or medium?
I think I like it medium and in this video am going to share the natural way to make your fufu. 3 ways. I wanted to put up a little cassava recipe, and I thought what will be best to start with? It was nothing but our famous fufu.
So I have just peeled one cassava and am taking out the core and am going to dice them into little pieces and I will use my master prep to crash it to the smoothest that it can take and I will transfer it into a different blender to blend it smoothly for me, and I will be mixing it with plantain. We are tired of eating the powder one, yeah, so we are going to eat the natural one. I must say that my children and I love the powder one just fine, and because they will not eat it if the see the seeds in it, I choose to take out the seeds. I do this because my kids don’t want to see those black spots in it.
Then I transfer to my master prep blender then, am going to blend it to the smoothest that this will take me like, then I will transfer to a different blender, which is this one right here. I will add a little water to the bottom of it to help turn the blade and I will add my mix of cassava and plantain to it and I will blend it completely smoothly. Please do not blend with a lot of water, as always you cannot take out but you can add more.
So now that this is done, I will divide it into two, one part I will cook in the microwave and the other part with the stove.
At this point you will add enough water to be very nice and loose but not watery just like this texture right here. And you want to use the microwave safe, cover it up and put it into your microwave for 8 minutes.
And the second one I just prepped into a bowl and we will be making this one on the stove, and like I said do not add too much water so that it doesn’t become so soft on you. So this have been cooking for about 8 minutes and it looks good, so am just going drive it or mash it by pressing it to the side of the cup that am. I will do that until it is nice and smooth and I will sprinkle water to the top of it and put it back in the microwave for about 2 – 4 minutes and that should complete the cooking process, because right now it is done, I just want it to be completely done because you don’t want to taste the fresh cassava or anything. So, I cooked this for a total of 12 minutes and as you can see it looks good. It is so beautiful. Then we will transfer it into our earthen pot. And we are going to make it nice and smooth. Once that is done and you feel it is nice and smooth you will turn it and flip it over on the nice side. The microwave one is done, yes just look how beautiful that looks.
Let us move on to the stove one. So this is not just like the microwave one when you can just throw it in and stand somewhere for it to cook, this one you have to stir it, keep stirring because is going to become lumpy, if you do not stir continuously those lump will cook and your fufu will become lumpy. So we stir till it all comes together, once it all comes together, you can now add a little bit of water to finish the cooking process and that is when you leave it to cook for about 5 minutes. Add a bit of water and I am just going to spin it around a little bit to allow the water to go to the corners of it because this is what will cook it, you want to ensure that this cooked properly. So once its cooked about 3 or so minutes on one side you flip it over and allow it to cook on the other side for additional 3 minutes and it should be ready at this point and am just going to drive it, and it is done. But if you feel there are lumps, I beat it to the side of the bowl, stop and check if there are any, then you pick it up. And the good thing is mine don’t have any, but that’s the trick to get out lumps from your fufu or ‘konkonte’, so am going to turn it and the stove one is done as well. There you have it.
Finally, am just going to cook it the way we do it in Ghana and pound it, only this one we will be using our food processor. So, I cut them into little chumps and am going to cook it until it is nice and soft and completely done. So, I added some water and cover it, let it cook completely. And 0nce your knife can just go through it easily like this it is ready so we are going to get out the water and into our food processor it will go. one thing I have noticed about the food processor is that if you take it and you try to smoothen your fufu immediately, it will begin to melt on you, so what is I do once am done processing it, I let it sit to cool down completely, so I give it about 5 – 8 minutes and ensure that it is nice and cold before I try to smoothen it up. So I will blend, process and am going to pour that out so like I said allow it to cool for a good 5 or so minutes before trying anything. So, as you can see it hot, so its been sitting for about 8 minutes now, its nice and firm. And I will just turn it. You see I left the seeds in this one, because I will enjoy it myself, I don’t want my kids not to like fufu anymore just because they see those specs.
Go ahead and serve it with your favorite soup and enjoy. I must say the microwave one is my personal favorite, its easy and fast and you don’t even have to use the stove and it is done, the texture is perfect.
