Millet Balls in Yogurt (Fura da Nono)

This is a snack that can also be eaten as dessert from northeastern Nigeria.

1 pound millet flour (available from health food or specialty stores) 

1 ⁄2 TBS mixed spices (powdered cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg)

1 ⁄2 cup cold water wheat flour 1 cup yogurt sugar or honey to taste


Blend millet flour and spice mix. Add sufficient water to make a firm paste. 

Knead for 10 minutes. Allow dough to rest, covered, in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 

Divide dough into eight, and form each into a ball. Roll each ball in wheat flour to avoid sticking. 

Place, well apart, into an oiled steamer and steam for 15 minutes. Serve in individual plates, ladling yogurt and honey on top
