How To Make Moi Moi In Disposable Drinking Cups


Cooked moi moi 
On this blog, we have recipes for moi moi wrapped in leaves, cooked in bags but not this. I saw this recipe on Myne Whitman's blog and promised her that when I try it, she'll know. Fortunately, it turned out great. It was truly tasty and soft. When I saw this moi moi that
day, I just remembered my cups wasting at home.

NB: Always remember that making moi moi in leaves and ceramics is the best option healthwise.

Ingredients:
2 Cups brown beans with skin
1large smoked cat fish
5 large tatashe
2 small red pepper
1 large onion
1 small can Gino tomato paste
Salt
Seasoning cubes
Soya oil
water
Smoked cat fish, blended tatashe, pepper, onion and tomato paste

Frying blended ingredients in hot oil
Adding Ingredients to ground beans, check for salt and seasoning, add more if needed
Pouring moi moi in cups, I had to cook twice cos the pot couldn't take all.  This quantity produced  about 20 cups of moi  moi. Pour boiling water in the pot before turning on the heat. Water should be at finger length so that moi moi doesn't tumble when it starts boiling. Check the pot frequently. This moi moi cooked in 45 minutes.
Moi moi fell off while being removed from cup
Second batch of moi moi. These tasted better cos I added more salt
Cooked moi moi in a plate
Moi moi cooked in drinking cups
Hot moi moi
Hot moi moi served with custard 
Tasty soft moi moi direct from cups
Enjoy!

  2. Nice one! Never even thought of plastic cups. I use the aluminium bowls with covers and was thinking of switching to the leaves.
    Nice one though, looks really yummy

    1. Ahdaisy,
      Nylon, disposable cups and plastics all belong to the same family(same chemical components).

    4. @Mrs FT, sometimes if I'm served with it outdoors but not at home. We don't even have them at home.

      @Aunty Eya, foil? Isn't it made from aluminium? My hand no dey oh; I'm always on the side of caution.

      @mrs FT why nylon, plastic etc is not good is because it is boiled with hot water for a long time. It hs even been said it not good to drink very hot tea in plastic cups. The water you drink with disposble cups is not hot water so that's. Ok

      Eya try and draw her attention to this.

  4. Nice one. Definitely easier than using leaves(tho the taste is incomparable) but then I wonder if this is same as using plastic since they discourage from its use coz of chemicals.

      I will ALWAYS prefer using leaves anyday, anytime!

      I didn't know how to wrap with leaves too till momsy forced me. Thank GOD, I'm very proficient at it now.

      Apart from health issues, I've tried using nylons and the moin moin doesn't come out well; one side is cooked, another is messy and the remaining part cooked but with leaves, all is perfecto!

    2. I love leaves too but when they are not available I think these cups are far better than nylon bread bags.

      Delete
    3. I won't use nylon bags now but I think I can manage these drinking cups o.

    1. Thanks Creamberry but I think this cups are sturdier (Stronger) than nylon bag.

  16. Eya, your moi moi turned out excellent!

    For those who can find leaves, it's definitely more natural. Plastic conetainers work for me better than the aluminium foil which I used before - the cups you can either dispose of after use, or wash and use again. Here's a link to my moi moi in a cup;

    My time saver for peeling beans. Soak as usual for about 20 minutes and put about a cup and a half in the blender at a time. Cover with at least 3 cups of water. Whiz in the blender or pulse for a minute or until you see the skins separate from the white. Voila. Takes me less than !0 mins so I can actually make akara and moinmoin in the morning before work.

    1. Wow, thanks for the tip. Peeling is the reason I now cook with only brown beans so I don't get to spends time peeling.
      Thanks Yosola.
