Cassava Flour Lafun 1.5kg

Description

Cassava flour lafun, also known simply as lafun, is a type of flour made from cassava root. Cassava is a starchy tuberous root that is widely consumed in many parts of the world, particularly in Africa, Asia, and South America. Lafun is a popular staple food in Nigeria, where it is commonly eaten as a side dish or used in various traditional recipes.

To make lafun, cassava roots are peeled, washed, and grated to obtain a pulp. The pulp is then fermented for a period of time to reduce the cyanide content and improve the flavor. After fermentation, the pulp is spread out to dry in the sun or using modern drying methods. Once completely dried, the cassava pulp is ground into a fine powder, resulting in cassava flour lafun.

Lafun has a distinctive flavor and texture. It is gluten-free, grain-free, and often used as an alternative to wheat flour in gluten-free cooking and baking. The flour can be used to make a variety of dishes, including flatbreads, dumplings, porridge, or as a thickening agent in soups and stews.

To prepare lafun-based dishes, the flour is typically mixed with water to form a dough-like consistency. The dough is then shaped into desired forms, such as flatbreads or dumplings, and cooked by frying, baking, or steaming.

Lafun is commonly available in Nigerian markets, grocery stores, or specialty African food stores. It may also be found in international or online retailers that cater to gluten-free or African cuisine like Ogbongeh.com
