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!
