poi
Poi is a starchy porridge like substance made from the pounded root of the taro plant. It is a staple in Polynesian diets.

Poi is NOT a form of dancing..."poi balls" as they are called, were long ago used to extract the excess water from poi as it was being made... It wasn't until modern times that poi balls were stuffed with cotton and used as an art instead of a kitchen aide.
