Elubo is the Yoruba word for yam flour made by cutting yam into small bits, dried and then ground into smooth brown flour. The flour is used in preparing amala or lafun. Many prefers amala to eba or pounded yam because it is thought to be a “lighter” meal compared to the last two. It tend to feature at lunch time or dinner in most West African food timetable. Amala is one of the staple foods of the Yoruba speaking people of West Africa and it is eaten with traditional African soups like egusi soup, ewedu, gbegiri or okro and stew. These soups and stews are vegetable and fish or meat based.
