Amala Food

Amala is a local indigenous Nigerian food eaten by the Yoruba people of Western Nigeria. It is made from either Yam flour, Unripe plantain flour or Cassava flour.

The plantain, cassava ( white flour) or yam is peeled, sliced into tiny bits, cleaned then dried and blended into a flour. The black resultant flour is due to the drying process.

Types of Amala

There are 3 types of Amala in Nigeria. We have the Yam flour (àmàlà isu), Plantain flour (Amala ogede) and Cassava flour (àmàlà láfún). Cassava flour (àmàlà láfún) is dried cassava flour.

  1. Yam flour (àmàlà isu)
  2. Plantain flour (Amala ogede)
  3. Cassava flour (àmàlà láfún)

(Cassava flour fufu)

Láfún is white Amala otherwise known as cassava flour fufu. It is eaten as a swallow with vegetable soup, okra or ewedu. To make cassava flour, the cassava is processed, dried and blended to make the white flour. Unlike Amala that requires constant heat in the preparation process, láfún is made in a similar way to eba.
