STEAMED FONIO WITH OKRA

 

200 g Fonio

2 l Water

Wash fonio and remove excess water in a kitchen towel. Boil water in a couscous pot, add fonio slowly, and cover pot tightly so that steam does not escape. Steam 20 minutes. Leaving the pot on the fire, remove the fonio, mix with a little water, cover, and let stand for 5 - 10 minutes. Return fonio to couscous pot and steam 20 minutes. Repeat operations 3 and 4. Mix with boiled okra and serve.

Serves 4.
