HOW TO MAKE MOIN MOIN WITH RAW EGG AND BEANS

Image
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 MOI MOI RECIPE (EASY STEPS)

Image
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

How to cook moi moi with whole coconuts

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.

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.

How To Make Corn Moi Moi With Corn Flour

This corn moi moi tasted good but wasn't as soft as the one I made with fresh corn. It was hard and I think that's because corn flour is made from dry corn. When next I try, I'll soak the corn flour over night before cooking my moi moi cos I like corn moi moi. There is one on the blog posted by Mrs Sykes.
