Yam Flour - Elubo
Yam flour, also known as Elubo in some African countries, is a fine, white powder made from dried yam roots. It is a popular staple food in West African cuisine, particularly in countries like Nigeria, Ghana, and Benin. Yam flour is widely used to prepare a variety of traditional dish called amala
The process of making yam flour involves peeling, slicing, parboiling, drying, and milling the yam roots into a smooth powder. This powder can then be used to make a dough-like consistency by mixing it with water and cooking it over heat. The resulting dough is often pounded or kneaded to achieve a smoother texture.
