"A classic African dish which can be served as an accompaniment to dishes such as Egusi Soup. Traditionally this dish is eaten communally using the hands. A small amount is rolled in the hand, then dipped into the soup before being eaten."

We just call this "gari" in Nigeria. You can also experiment and use different types of flour such as yam flour (my personal favorite) or even Farina. It's very sticky so I suggest serving with a small bowl of water to dip your fingers in before making the small ball.

I haven't tried this recipe exactly, but I was taught this dish using semolina flour. It's very delicious with any kind of African stew!
