- Turning stick
Procedure[edit | edit source]
- Cut the cocoyam into small pieces. Rinse the pieces, and boil them for few minutes. Drain the cocoyam.
- Mix water into the cassava flour to make a dough. Shape into balls.
- Boil the cassava balls for few minutes, then drain.
- Pound together the cassava balls and cocoyam until smooth and lump-free.
- Serve with your choice of soup.
Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]
- When cocoyam is pounded it becomes soft and sticky. Thus, the cassava flour is added to serve as a binder, which thickens the mixture and makes it easier to shape.
