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 fordigestion 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.
