Directions for Making Carrot Fufu
Trim the shoots of the carrots and cut off any dark marks. If your carrots are too muddy, scrape them.
Grate the carrots.
Blend with as little water as possible and pour into a muslin bag or a chiffon cloth to remove the water. Save the water.
Wringe the chiffon cloth till there’s no water in the carrot pulp.
Put the carrot pulp into a pot on medium heat. Then start stirring.
When it heats up, check the time and continue stirring for 5 minutes. Add some of the water that came from the carrot if you notice it drying up and continue stirring.
After 5 minutes, add the psyllium husk or xanthan gum and continue stirring for 2 more minutes or till a moldable dough is formed.
Add a bit of the juice again, cover and cook for half a minute.
Mix again till well combined.
Wrap with a plastic film to keep it moldable. They say that a plastic film causes cancer but to be honest, I am yet to find another utensil that can do a good job of keeping this carrot fufu moldable especially if you use the mixtures from combination 1 or 2. So to use or not to use the plastic film? You decide.
