There are different methods of making moin moin using wheat. Some recipes use wheat flour, some use bulgur wheat and so on. Today I am making moi moi musing wheat grains I bought to make wheat fufu from scratch. The fufu has been made and the excess grains are what I'm going to blend into flour and use my homemade wheat moin moin. After soaking the wheat and blending, the process is just the same as when we make beans moi moi .

This red beans moin moin was made the same day I fried red beans akara balls. I just wanted to see how red beans can be served in different ways to my family to enable us eat some more red beans. I love red beans porridge and I think I enjoy it more than this red beans moi moi or the red beans akara. Just like the akara balls made from red beans, some of my family members like this but I didn't enjoy the


Moin moin recipes we posted on the blog all have beans as the major ingredients and they came out perfect even though none was cooked with a mixture of raw eggs and beans, like the coconut milk moin moin. The popular Nigerian moin moin recipe is the one that adds hard boiled eggs while wrapping the moin moin.

This weekend, I made very fluffy, delicious and excellent moi moi by just adding whisked raw eggs to the ground beans and whisking even more to get air into the mixture and make it light. It worked so well. By the time I finished uploading the pics on Facebook, the very large pot of moi moi ws cleared by my family who kept picking and going for more. I enjoyed mine with soaked garri, while some served themselves with pap and moin moin, others just ate the moin moin with no accompaniment and it was really delicious. If it turned out not so good, I would have warned so you don't waste your time trying. But this one is some moin moin recipe everyone needs to try.

Okpa (Recipe below) can be eaten at anytime of day. It is made from okpa beans known as Bambara beans/nuts. There are so many benefits of eating bambara nuts, whether boiled, cooked as okpa, or roasted. These Bambara nuts boost blood production, they are rich in Iron.They supply remedy for lack of sleep, help treat insomnia and get your body relaxed for a good night sleep. Help fight arthritis, okpa reduces the danger of stomach cancer, lowers cholesterol and even fights anaemia also known as kwashiorkor. Bambara beans are rich in antioxidant properties that help you fight quick aging, they are rich in proteins, carbohydrates and varying minerals. They are also reported to be therapeutic... Try them and see.  Well, I don't cook with cellophane bags and do not encourage anyone to do so at all at all BUT for this particular okpa, I chose to go the nylon bag way. I wanted the exact look I see on those okpa sellers' heads around Area 1. I don't even know where to find


Yes! the digits are still dropping and I'm even a bit worried "I hope it's not rapid because I know first hand the disadvantages of losing weight too quckly. Been there, I saw the wrinkled forehead and regretted. Thankfully I gained it back and the wrinkles disappeared. The sagging skin wahala is another disadantages. When weight is lost too quickly, the body doesn't have enough time to adjust. The skin loses water and fat that initially filled it up, cannot adjust that quickly and begins to be sad and wrinkle. Losing slowly is the best as your skin doesn't even realize something (Fat) is being burnt out, so it naturally goes back gradually to original size. Lolz.

Yes. today Friday March 9th my weight has dropped to
