Therefore, the plantain fufu is heartwarming.A few years ago I Online cooking workshop Taught the group how to make Oobakovfu efo riro.. Everyone agreed that it was a delicious combination.

This West African dish (often referred to as the “swallow”) is made from green plantain and is considered a lighter alternative to traditional cassava fufu. The high starch content of unripe plantain means that the fufu flavor is mild and the subtle sweetness goes well with the savory stew. Starch also helps the fufu to thicken effectively, but ripe plantain leaves you with a thick paste-like consistency.
