PREPARATION
1. FUFU "PLANTAIN OR COCOYAM" (with soup):- There are two(2) main ways of preparing "fufu". The indiginous Ghananian "fufu"eater prefers their "fufu" being pounded with mortal and pistel. In this way, you peel either plantain or cocoyam and cook with cassava tii well boiled (ie) do not over-cook. The cooked plantain or cocoyam and cassava is allowed to cool down. Then with mortal and pistle you pound plantain or cocoyam with cassava together tii well mixed.

Now mould the 'fufu' into round balls and eat with soup. There are so many types of soups you can eat with 'fufu'. Examples are light soup, groundnut soup, palm-nut soup. I will come to preparations of soups later.
