Happy New Year! I took a brief break for the holidays but I am back!!! With the new year, I like a lot of people have quite a few new action plans. One of the plans I have for the year is to celebrate African food even more here on Yummy Medley, and to challenge you guys to break your diet norms and explore the world of African and Afro-Tropical food. In keeping with my new year resolve, I will be sharing with you the merits of one of Sub-Saharan Africa’s treasures, Fonio. Fonio is a drought resistant grain mostly grown in the Western Sahel region of Africa, and this fonio recipe uses it in a porridge consumed in diverse variations, and is referred to as Acha pudding or fonio cereal in Nigeria.
