  • 2 Plantains green
  • ½ to ¾ Cup water


  • Peel the plantain and cut it into small sizes.
  • Throw in the cut plantain pieces in a blender and blend until smooth
  • Pour the batter inside a pot and cook on medium heat stirring constantly until a stretchy and dough-like consistency is formed.
  • Leave it to cool for few minutes before eating. This will make the Fufu a little firmer.



You need to stir thoroughly until the fufu is formed otherwise you might end up with lumps
When the fufu is done, cover it or wrap it in a plastic wrap in order to prevent it from forming a crust. Leave it to cool for few minutes.
