The controversial player says he loves eating Ghana Jollof and also fufu.
In an Instagram live interview with Thiery Henry, Balotelli chose Jollof as his all-time favorite meal and also picked ‘Fufu’ as his second-best food.
“I can cook basic stuff but not even good, to be honest cooking is not my stuff, I don’t like it to be honest. I like to eat Pasta, a lot of meat, then I have some African dishes I like, like jollof rice, of course, that’s the best," Balotelli said.
He added that : “I can eat vegetables, not a lot, some fish but for me, African jollof rice is the best and Pasta. I like fufu but fufu you can eat once every three weeks it’s a bit heavier."
The 29-year old is currently on the books of hometown club Brescia.
