Pounded yam is one of the most popular varieties of the fufu dishes that accompany many of Nigeria's delicious soups and stews. It can either be made by mixing yam powder and hot water or pounding raw yams. Making the dish from scratch is difficult, but by all accounts the difference in taste makes it worthwhile to make the effort.
