    Used different ingredients. We just call this "gari" in Nigeria. You can also experiment and use different types of flour such as yam flour (my personal favourite) or even Farina. It's very sticky so I suggest serving with a small bowl of water to dip your fingers in before making the small ball. - 29 Sep 2008
