BURKINA FASO: Tô

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of corn or millet flour
  • Water

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the corn or millet flour with enough water to make a thick paste. Mix well until there are no lumps.
  2. Let the mixture sit at room temperature for about 2-3 days to ferment. The fermentation process will depend on the temperature and can take longer in cooler climates.
  3. After fermentation, you should see some bubbles and notice a slightly sour smell.
  4. In a large pot, bring water to a boil.
  5. Gradually add the fermented flour mixture to the boiling water, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon or whisk to prevent lumps from forming.
  6. Continue stirring vigorously until the mixture thickens and forms a smooth, thick porridge-like consistency. This usually takes about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Once the Tô reaches the desired consistency, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly.
  8. Serve the Tô in bowls or plates and enjoy it with various toppings or accompanying dishes such as stews, vegetables, or sauces.

Tô is typically eaten with your hands, where you use your fingers to scoop up a portion of Tô and use it to pick up the accompanying dishes. It is a common and beloved dish in Burkina Faso, often enjoyed as a main meal or as a side dish.
