Poundo potato - How to make potato swallow

Who ever thought potato could be made as "swallow"? Until i got a pack of potato flakes to try recently, i would never have imagined it could be a possibility.
I mean we use cassava to make fufu and garri swallow, yam to make pounded yam and amala swallow, wheat to make wheat meal "swallow", cassava starch to make Usi so potato flour swallow is definitely in line with everything swallow/fufu stands for. At first i thought; wouldn't it be too soft to be rolled into balls? 
But i figured out since the potato has been dehydrated and converted into powdered flaky form, forming morsels with it becomes easier. The second thing that crossed my mind was, wouldn't it need a binding agent so it doesn't fall apart? Well it doesn't since potato is already starchy on its own. 
Potatoes are edible tubers rich in carbohydrates and nutrients such as vitamin C, B6, phosphorus, niacin, manganese e.t.c. A medium sized serving of potato (about 148g) contains about 110 calories.
