If want a softer fufu, use 4 cups of water. (I usually use 3 cups) It may seem too wet after making it. Turn it and let it cool a bit before wrapping. It becomes thicker as it cools.
It is important to wrap oat fufu in Saran /cello Wrap if you are not eating immediately. This will prevent the oat fufu from forming a skin over it.
