Hello my lovelies! Today I will be showing how to make Nigerian/West African swallow. This, a healthier version of fufu, semi, garri and so on. You get the gist. It's very straightforward and you won't break bank or your wallet.

Ingredients:
Oats.
Water.

Appliances: blender, turning garri (gaskiya, I've forgotten the English name for this appliance, I think it's wooden spatula), clean pot and heat.

Add equal parts of oats and water into your blending jug and blend till it is a smooth paste. If you like it rough don't make it overly smooth. I don't like sufferhead so I blend until it is very smooth.

Transfer the mixture/paste into a lot and place it on medium heat (fire). Use the wooden spatula to turn the mixture (almost as if you're making Quaker oats). At this point, DO NOT ADD WATER OR EXTRA OATS. Keep turning. You can reduce the heat to low heat if it starts burning. After 5 minutes, use the spatula to create spaces by the side of the oats as if you're making semovita. Then, add a little water and cover. Keep your eyes on it if not it will disgrace you 😂

After one minute, open the pot and give it a good stir. Off it and plate your healthy fufu/garri option. You can also wrap it like I did.
