Recipe: How to make guinea corn fufu from scratch

Gunea corn fufu with soup

 Guinea corn is awesome  in terms of nutrients, and can provide us  with vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin, as well as high levels of magnesium, iron, copper, calcium, phosphorous, and potassium, as well as nearly half the daily required intake of protein.  It is not only recommended for babies as adults too need all those vitamins.
Guinea corn (sorghum) fufu is made the exact same way as the millet fufu I posted earlier. Unlike cassava and yam, the bulk of guinea corn and millet is fiber, which is good for
digestion and bowel movements.

First I bought my guinea corn grains, cleaned and took to the mill for grinding, That's all. With the flour stored at home, I just mix the little quantity I want with cold water and place on the cooker while stirring continuously. Once the watery mixture boils, I stir for about five more minutes before I begin to sprinkle in the flour and stir until it gets as hard as I want. I lik my fufu soft so I don't add much flour. 
When it's as thick as I want. I stop adding the flour but continue stirring until it's done and fluffy.


Pouring in a little flour to mix with tap water before putting in the pot.

On the stove now

I'm stirring as it begins to thicken and look elastic and sticky kind of


At this point I'm going to start sprinkling in some flour. I like to add a pinch of salt here, that's just me oh.


Still too soft for me here, I'll add some more powder


Exactly how I want it. The heat is turned off

Scooping into cellophane bags because the last time I left to cool in an open pot. It turned  hard.
