Coo-Coo Ingredients

  • 12 Okra
  • 1.5 litres/ 2 1/2 pints water
  • good pinch of salt
  • 250g/8oz yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 25g/1oz butter

To Serve:

  • Cooked sweet potatoes
  • sliced tomatoes
  • slices pimentos

How To Make Coo-Coo:

  1. wash the okra and cut off the stems. Cut them into 5mm/ 1/4-inch thick slices. Bring the water to the boil in a large saucepan and add the prepared okra and the salt. Boil until tender.
  2. Slowly add the cornmeal to the saucepan in a thin stream, stirring all the time with a wooden spoon. Keep stirring to prevent any lumps forming and removing any cornmeal from the sides of the pan.
  3. Add the sugar and continue cooking over moderate heat for about 5-10 minutes, stirring all the time. When cooked, the coo-coo mixture will be thick and smooth.
  4. Place the butter in a warmed rounded bowl or basin and add the coo-coo. Roll it around in the bowl until it forms a ball. Serve, cut into slice with sweet potatoes, tomatoes and pimentos.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Serves: 6
