  • Cooker
  • Pot
  • Turning stick or stirrer
  • Bowl


  • Raw cassava fufu
  • Water


  • Put the raw cassava fufu in a bowl then add little water. Run your hands through it so as to dissolve any excess lump. Mix to form a paste.
  • Put little water on medium heat, bring to boil. Pour in your paste, let it rest for 2-5 minutes. Begin to stir with a turning stick or stirrer. Mix well to avoid lumps that form as it cooks.
  • Add little water at a time , if necessary. Stir and ensure the fufu is not too strong. Keep stirring until the fufu changes colour ( bright white to off white) or you can also check by tasting it. The fufu is ready if the colour changes.
  • Reduce the heat, then mold the fufu into any shape of your choice.
  • Enjoy with any soup of your choice.
