Konkonte, also known by many as abitie, abetee, lapiiwa and lapelawa, is a delicious staple food in Ghana. It is very popular in West African countries such as Nigeria and Togo, and it is also very popular in the Caribbean. The English name of this delicacy is “brown fufu”. It is made from sun-dried cassava root and ground into a very smooth powder. Cooked Kokonte is light brown or dark brown.
Cassava flour is a staple food in West Africa. Cassava Flour (Kokonte) is obtained from the tuberous root of the cassava flour and remains a major component of the typical African diet. Cassava flour is rich in starch and fibre. It serves perfectly well as a substitute for fufu and is delicious when eaten with vegetable and other soups.
