Plantain Fufu is basically swallowed and made from unripe Plantains flour. This is a very healthy meal which is gluten-free, low sugar and generally recommended for diabetic patients.
500g of plantain flour
3/4 cup of hot water
1/4 cup of warm water
Boil some water in a kettle then transfer into a pot. Ensure that the pot is on fire so the water doesn’t stop boiling.
In the boiling water, add in plantain flour while stiring (use a wooden spoon or whichever is easier for you). Keep stiring till the plantain flour mixes properly with the water and starts to solidify.
Start to turn the dough and pull towards you continuously to avoid lumps. Keep doing this till the dough is smooth.
Add in some water to the dough and allow it to cook for some minutes.
Continue in a Stir- Gather- Pull motion, till your plantain fufu is fluffy and lump free.
