Nutritious Egg Moi Moi By Flo

I Prepared Omalicha's Egg Moi Moi


Yummy egg moi moi
If you are like me and you do not like hardboiled eggs (I only eat the egg whites lol) and you do not like fried egg (it gives me heart burn), then you will love Egg Moi Moi – I love this name!
Egg Moi Moi is a cross between boiled egg and fried egg. It is cooked but you get the chance to beat the egg to combine the egg yolk and
the albumen before boiling it. It’s just like Poached Eggs without the runny egg yolk! Thanks to Omalicha, I can now enjoy eggs without feeling sick!
Ingredients
I prepared mine with:
-       2 Eggs
-       ½ a tomato
-       A pinch of salt (or to your taste)
-       Vegetable oil (for rubbing the insides of the bowls)
Note: Instead of tomatoes, you can add any other vegetable that you like: shredded carrots, green pepper, green peas etc.

Tool
-       Bowls for cooking the Egg Moi Moi
You can also use aluminium foil bags or transparent nylon bags like Omalicha stated in her recipe.

Preparation
1.  Set some water to boil in a big enough pot.
2.  Break the eggs into a bowl and beat till combined.
3.  Add salt and stir.
4.  Add the tomato (diced). Stir.
5.  Rub the insides of the bowls with vegetable oil so that the Egg Moi Moi comes out easily when done.
6.  Pour the eggs into the bowls.
7.  Place the bowls in the boiling water just like you would when cooking Nigerian Moi Moi with bowls. You can pad the pot so that the contents are cooked by indirect heat.
The level of water should be such that water does not get into the bowls.
8.  Cover the pot and cook on low to medium heat for 10-12 minutes, less time if using aluminium foil bags or transparent nylon bags. If you cook them on high heat, the eggs will foam so much and become dark in colour. They are also dark when you cook them for too long even if you used low heat so keep an eye on it.
9.  It’s done when the mixture solidifies.
As stated above, me and eggs no dey pally but I love Egg Moi Moi! Beware; one can finish a crate of eggs in one sitting when they are prepared this way. :D
Thanks Omalicha!

GENNY BABY said...

Looks yummy.

Lizzy said...

Very similar to poached eggs. If a little blended beans is added, will it set just like this? Very nice and different from the usual.

Oh dear! This is like months later And I didn't even know someone remembered this,you're most welcome,I feel so happy knowing I helped you with the perfect recipe since you didn't fancy boiled or fried eggs. You must be a wonderful cook,you perfected this by using plates(I use nylons,lol),and the fact you added your own touch of tomatoes made it fascinating.Nice one,yours has a well defined shape. No more Amoeba shaped egg moin-moin 4 me,I made the switch!! Thanks!

Debbie said...

Sister Flo thank you o nwanyi oma. Am still owing you recharge card.
I made this as a side dish for the house this morning and it was so welcomed. I fact am eating mine as I type and I tell you this' a healthy alternative. This egg moi moi will go very well with fried plantain (wish there's an alternative to that aside the Airfryer which tends to scramble the plantains)

Flo said...

All kudos to Omalicha o!

Flo said...

hehehe the same look that hubby gave me when he asked what I was making and I simply said "Egg Moi Moi" with a straight face! Pls do and tell us what you think. :))

Flo said...

It will set just that you'll need to cook it for much longer because of the beans.

Flo said...

Omalicha nne, it's the perfect name you gave it that made me think about cooking it with bowls just like the classic Moi Moi. lol @ amoeba shaped egg moi moi! :D

O yes, I remembered o and to think you only mentioned it in the comments (not as a post), I tried it and it was so awesome that I thought the recipe deserves to be brought in the open for all to see. Thanks!

Flo said...

hehe that our recharge card biz? Abeg hold it for me make e dey generate interest! LOL
Trust you action woman to try it immediately! <3
Now you are giving me more ideas at the mention of alternatives to frying the plantains. If you follow 9jafoodie, there's this plantain calabash she made last year, you can bake that and serve the Egg Moi Moi in those! That would be awesome!

Flo said...

:D

You can slice your plantains, brush with a little oil and bake them, it comes out perfect like fried plantains, the difference is that baking takes longer.
