Akpu is a Nigerian dish made from fermented wet paste of cassava. This is done by soaking the cassava for a few days, this helps to soften the roots as well as reduce potentially toxic carcinogenic compounds contained within.

Once its fermentation period is complete, it is then boiled till soft and pounded till it's smooth, firm and elastic with a dough-like consistency and can be served with any Nigerian soup.
