Fufu Pounding Machine Price In Ghana

 Gone were the days we used to spend so much time cooking our plantain and cassava and proceeding to pound it. Fufu is a dough-like food found in West African cuisine.

Ever since the Portuguese traders introduced cassava to Africa from Brazil in the 16th century, fufu has become a staple food for most Ghanaians. Fufu is made out of boiling cassava and/or other tubers like plantain or cocoyam. It’s generally crushed together with a wooden pestle in a locally produced wooden mortar (woduro) (woma). The mixture is churned by hand in between pestle strikes, and water is gradually added until it becomes slurry, mushy, and sticky. After that, the mixture is shaped into a circular slab and served. Preparation has become substantially less labor-intensive since the invention of the fufu machine.

A fufu machine is a kitchen gadget that pounds cooked starchy vegetables, such as cassava, plantains, or yams, into fufu, a West and Central African staple dish.

Traditional hand-pounding methods took at least 30 minutes to obtain the fine, dough-like, pasty texture of fufu; fufu machines can generate the same texture in about one minute.
Fadegnom Charles, a Ghanaian electrical equipment merchant, created the first fufu machine in 2004, producing limited quantities of electric fufu machines for local market.
Soon after, a team at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) led by Professor Kwadeo Kesse, Dr Lawrence Ansong, and R.E Doddoo released a mass-marketable design. By 2014, the machine has become widely used in Accra, in both homes and small companies.
