Oatmeal fufu is a very healthy meal, it is a great way to eat more fiber. Some people do keto for eat healthy which works pretty well but I’m not cut out for that…lol. I love food but I try to eat as healthy as possible so eating swallow “morsel” using oatmeal is a great option.
To make this oatmeal fufu recipe you need to grind the oatmeal into a powder for if you think the powder is not smooth enough just sieve it out. Bring water to a rolling boil and set aside some aside then add the oatmeal powder then turn and cook as you would cook amala.
One of the most important things to know about oatmeal fufu is that if you’re not eating it immediately you might want to make it softer (not so soft but lighter) than when you want to eat it immediately because it gets a little bit harder when it gets cold.
I used Quicker oat whole wheat rolled and it was enough for four average adults.
You might want to try;
- 4 Cups Grinded Oatmeal
- 3.5 Cups hot water plus more
Grind whole wheat rolled oatmeal into powder, you can use a small dry mill/ grinder or blender, pour into a bowl, if you think the oatmeal is not fully blended, sieve it out.
Bring about 4 cups of water to a boil over high heat, use a cup and set some aside. Reduce the heat to low and gently add the oatmeal powder, use a ladle, or rolling stick (orogun) and turn until the oatmeal powder is absorbed.
Add hot water if it is too hard and turn. If you’re not eating the oatmeal immediately make it a little bit softer because it gets harder when after it’s done.
To roll the oatmeal fufu: scoop some with a small bowl into a cling then place a cling over it, place a sheet of parchment paper long enough to cover the length when rolling.
Use a rolling pin and roll out the oatmeal to give you a square-like shape. Remove the paper and the fling cover the oatmeal and gently pull in the uneven side of the oatmeal, cover with fling again and the parchment paper and continue to roll again.
Repeat the process if you get uneven sides. Remove the parchment paper and the cling.
Lift up the leftover cling to roll in the oatmeal fufu gently until you get to the end.
Then gently remove the cling. If you want it in a ball as it was served with the soup in the picture below, just scoop some oatmeal fufu onto a cling, put the excess cling together upward then roll the excess cling.
Serve with your favorite soup and enjoy!
