Foo foo

A dish traditional in West Africa, consisting of pounded starchy vegetables. These vary with the area, but are most commonly yams; although cassava, sweet potato and taro are also used.

The pounded starch is rolled into balls, before being dipped into a sauce or stew. In Barbados (in the West Indies) a similar dish is made with pounded plantains.
