Bring one and a quarter cup of water to boil in a sauce pan. Add 6 tablespoons of fonio and stir. Lower heat to minimum, add a dash of salt to taste and cover the sauce pan. Turn off heat and let steam for about 10 minutes. Take cover off and fluff fonio with a fork. Taste to see if it is cooked to your liking. If not, add a little more water and let steam for another 2 minutes.
Serve steamed fonio with any sauce of your choice: vegetable stew, meat stew or seafood sauce.Options on YouTube are: Cooking for Health with Timah: Alkaline Cuisine: Fonio couscous side dish; Hit Foods – Fonio Jollof and Harry Sacko – How to cook fonio-la cuisson du fonio
