How to cook moi moi with whole coconuts

 Moi moi cooked with whole coconuts.

I shared a moi moi recipe cooked with coconut milk instead of water here, a couple months back. Today, I'm cooking this delicious moi moi with whole coconuts not just the milk o. Coconuts are in season now and less expensive, we'll make the best of the season, load our bodies with all the cocogoodness. No oil added but you can add if you like. The bottle of oil in the pic is because I initially planned to stir-fry the onion, pepper and crayfish before adding, but later CHANGED my mind. These broad moi moi leaves have been preserved for 3 months and they still very fresh.
*TO QUICK-WASH BEANS; Rinse and run in the food processor for just 10 seconds, Add water and filter out the skin, rinse out all the skin in seconds and your beans is clean and ready.
2 cups beans (Shop measuring cups and measuring spoons )
1 medium sized coconut
1 cup water for blending (To start with, you may need more)
1 large onion
1 tablespoon ground crayfish because coconut loves cray
Boiled eggs
Salt to taste
2 seasoning cubes
Broad leaves for wrapping or tea mugs

1 glass of water, gradually add as pot dries but monitor so it doesn't burn.
