These days, however, there are new forms of swallows entering Nigerian cuisine, and here are three of them;

1.Carrot fufu

As the name suggests, this is a form of swallow made with carrots. You wash, blend, and sieve the carrots and then place the blended carrots into a pot with some water and make the carrot Fufu. As expected, this form of swallow comes with the orange colour of carrots and can be enjoyed with any type of Nigerian soup.
2.Rice fufu (tuwo shinkafa)

Somewhere in Nigeria, a chef decided they wanted to eat rice for dinner most likely but they wanted to do it unusually – in the form of swallow. This is probably how rice fufu came about or maybe it is a sight deviation from Tuwo shinkafa – rice swallow popular in Northern Nigeria. Rice fufu is made with rice and this time, instead of boiling rice as usual, it is soaked for some hours, blended, and then made into a swallow. Rice fufu looks like everyday fufu or pounded yam but has a different consistency and smell.

Just like the others, broccoli is blended and made into a swallow and enjoyed with different kinds of soup.
