Fura da nono which translates to Millet and Milk. Nono is locally fermented milk with a consistency that is thick but isn’t quite as thick as yoghurt.

Fura da nono originates from the Fulani people of West Africa. It's simply a refreshing locally made drink prepared from a combination of fermented milk and ground millet grains.

Growing up, I'd always anticipate the vendor's arrival with their big calabashes with the fura and the nono in a separate calabash. It's so creamy, thick and sweet. Just talking about it makes me want to make some right away.

Most of the vendors will normally mould the millet into balls but since we're making ours at home, we don't have to mould into balls.
