Gambian Dumpling Stew Recipe - 'Fufu'

   Cooking Page         Previous       Next
Cooking Ingredients:
Two to four pounds of yams

  Cooking Method:
1. Place yams in large pot and cover with cold water.
2. Bring to a boil and cook until the yams are soft (maybe half an hour).
3. Remove pot from heat and cool yams with running water then drain.
4. Remove peels from yams.
5. Add butter.
6. Put yams in a bowl (or back in the empty pot) and mash with a potato masher, then beat and stir with a wooden spoon until completely smooth. This might take two people: one to hold the bowl and the other to stir.
7. Shape the Fufu into balls and serve immediately with meat stew or any dish with a sauce or gravy. The best sauce to serve it with is 'Superkanja' To eat it, tear off a small handful with your fingers and use it to scoop up your meat and sauce with your dumplings.
Serves up to 4 people
