Anyway enough about me! Ghanaians love fufu! It is definitely a staple dish here. It is usually accompanied with peanut soup, palm nut soup or something like that. Fufu is made from a mix of cassava and green plantain.
The cassava and plantain is boiled and then pounded into fufu. Watching someone do the pounding is quite enjoyable. One person pounds with a long stick whilst the other person uses their hand to turn. I don’t mind pounding but I’m not sure if I ready to be the “turner”. That job requires too much attention and I like my fingers unpounded so it’s probably not a job for me.
Ghanaians love to eat fufu on a Sunday. Quite simply you eat and then you sleep. Perfect Sunday vibes.
