Comment Preparer le Fufu et Eru


  •  Sliced Eru/Okazi vegetable (2500g)
  • Palm oil (1 Liter)
  • Waterleaf or spinach (2500g)
  • Ground Crayfish (100g) – optional
  • Smoked fish or stock fish (optional)
  • Pepper (ground or 3 hot peppers)
  • Magi, salt, pepper
  • Meat, cow skin (kpomo)
  • Cassava flour


1) Eru leaves are very hard to cook, soak them water hours before cooking. It isalso good to have enough spinach to take the eru, I usually cook a 1:1 ratio of spinach and eru
2) Save juice from the cooking of meat and stock fish to reuse later in place of water



  • Wash the eru, leave it in the water to soften
  • Cook the cow skin with a bit of salt, maggi and pepper
  • Cook the stock fish in a separate pot. When ready add it to the meat
  • In a separate pot, cook the spinach with little to no water
  • Place eru in a colander to drain the wash
  • When the spinach is ready, add eru, stir well
  • Add water (from meat), let cook 
  • Make sure there is little to none water left when it's fully cooked
  • Add the meat and stock fish, stir
  • Pour your palm oil, stir
  • Finally add the crayfish. In a few minutes your eru is ready

  • Mix a portion of your cassava flour with cold/lukewarm water
  • Boil a small quantity of water, then add the mixture
  • Stir constantly
  • Add the remainin cassava flour little by little
  • Add water as needed
  • Keep pounding the fufu throughout the whole process, and until ready

Hey there! Thank you for your comment. You can find ERU in any
African market. It is also known as Okazi vegetables. Unfortunately I do not live in Chicago, so I do not know the locations of African makets over there. Good luck :)
