    This is a very good side dish of mash made with cassava and plantains. It is Ghanaian and it tastes very well with steaming egusi soup on top of it.

    1. Place the cassava and plantains (with peels on) into a large pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to the boil and cook until cassava is soft, about 30 minutes; drain. Remove and discard peels from plantains, and return them to the pot. Mash with butter, then beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Use as much butter as needed to get the mixture moist enough to blend.

    Very interesting, exotic taste. Wish I knew what groundnut is. Wikipedia lists many different plants called groundnut.  -  29 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm sure there are variations on making fufu, but it's supposed to have spices and meat in it (just like the PICTURE shows), like pig knuckles, red fish, and cow meat. Those ingredients are STRAIGHT from a Ghana fufu dish. I have no idea what what this recipe is supposed to be, but it's SO NOT what I'm looking for.  -  19 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
