Cooking Ingredients:

1) Two to four pounds of yams

Cooking Method:

1) Place yams in large pot & cover with cold water.

2) Bring to a boil & cook until the yams are soft (maybe half an hour).

3) Remove pot from heat & cool yams with running water then drain.

4) Remove peels from yams.

5) Add butter.

6) Put yams in a bowl (or back in the empty pot) and mash with a potato masher, then beat and stir with a wooden spoon until completely smooth. This might take two people: one to hold the bowl and the other to stir.

7) Shape the Fufu into balls and serve immediately with meat stew or any dish with a sauce or gravy. The best sauce to serve it with is 'Superkanja' To eat it, tear off a small handful with your fingers and use it to scoop up your meat and sauce with your dumplings.

Serves up to 4 people
