Fufu and Berbere Beef

To Make the Fufu: 


1 bag of corn flour


Step 1: Boil water in a saucepan (quantity depending on the number of people) Turn off the heat.

Step 2: Quickly pour cornmeal into the water, stirring with a spatula, trying not to make lumps, until all the water is absorbed.

Step 3: Stir vigorously with a wooden spatula by scraping the edges of the pan and crushing any lumps. You have to knead well. This should form a fairly compact ball.
