4. 3 medium size onions.
6. Corn dough.
7. Cassava dough.
8. Purified water as needed.
9. Salt to taste.
Preparation of banku
1. Combine the Cassava dough and water in a strainer to remove any lumps. (You can make things simpler by using a colander.)
2. Transfer the mixture to a pot and stir in the corn dough.
3. Stir in a little more water until the mixture is smooth and slightly thick.
4.To taste, add a teaspoon of salt to the mixture.
5. Bring the mixture to a boil in the pot over high heat.
6. Once the mixture begins to boil, knead it with a spatula (Banku 'ta') to prevent lumps from forming.
7. Knead the mixture on and off until it becomes smoother and thicker, and the color changes slightly.
Note: To test if your Banku is ready, mash a small portion of the cooked mixture in a small amount of water. Your Banku isn't ready if it dissolves and becomes milky. You can even take a slice of it to see if it's edible.
