How I Made My Moimoi by tyconcepts(f): 5:07pm On Aug 17, 2016

Ingredients
1. Beans
2. Fresh pepper
3. Tomatoes paste
4. Crayfish
5. Groundnut oil
6. Egg

9.Onions

Tools
1. My good faithful & loyal blender (The blender is BAE anytime....can even blend coconut... Yes! I like to brag)
2. Cups shaped like cupcake (My own def of cupcake o!)
3. Hot plate (I can't waste my gas on top moi moi in the Buhari season undecided)

Step by Step

1. Firstly I soaked the beans in water for 3mins before pouring it in the blender ( This is to peel the skin off the beans faster - using the blender instead of the conventional way I use to do it)

2. I plug the blender to electricity and spin for less than one minute (I didn't want to break the beans in bits & pieces)....I poured the beans in a bowl and sieved out the chaff (Its that easy).

3 After thoroughly sieving out all the chaff, I soaked the beans for about an hour (This is to achieve a soothe paste as am blending with a blender and not the 'market engine')

4. After I confirm the beans soft enough, I poured it into the blender with fresh pepper, tomatoe paste, crayfish & onions and blender till I achieve a smooth paste (Because am using a hand blender, I blend in batches).

5. I poured the smooth paste into a bowl, mixed it with water to my satisfaction, added my groundnut oil and salt + maggi to taste and stirred properly. I already boiled the eggs and diced as I want (I no fit begin use one full boiled egg for each plate o embarassed ....). I rinse the cupcake-look alike plates very well (I choose the plates over nylons and moimoi leaves because I can keep using them over and over again + I don't really know how to use the moimoi leaves sef embarassed

From what I see that blender is really good. Did it blend everything smoothly, with no small chunks or beans inside? It looks like a very simple blender but did an awesome job of blending the beans.

The blender is strong, faithful and reliable grin It blends smoothly with no chunk or trace of beans inside at all.

6. I scooped the quantity of moimoi into each of the plates, added my already boiled egg to each plate (The economy no let me add one full egg to each plate grin

7. I placed the plates inside a deep pot, I poured water inside the pot with the plates in it and placed the pot on my hot plate (Once again economy no let me use gas take cook moimoi....lailai wink

8. After about an hour (choose to boil for that long)....I swapped the plates i.e brought the ones from bottom to top, this is to ensure all plates cooks properly) and the result was sweeeeeeeet!

9. I ate my moimoi with rice + oil peppered stew + meat...You should have tasted it....#Fingerlicking


Appreciation goes to Zaynie for teaching me how to skin my beans with blender to make the work easier kiss kiss

Sugah, Ahnie, Liftedhands , Fortius , Mitchyy e.t.c food is ready.... I can give you one plate of moimoi each but no rice o! embarassed Don't look at me with bad eyes....Bag of rice is #22,000 now undecided embarassed undecided

I go bring Hansel share of the moimoi when I come around.... 5plates.

Check the quantity of water you put in and plz note that when you pour in your oil it gets lighter so you have to really be checkful with water input. As for it been tasteless, you ingredient application is same with how you make your other soups & food. As you add you ingredients, you keep tasting till you are okay with the taste. E no hard babe.

My dear, the healthy moulders (if I can use that word) for moin moin are good old leaves or tin containers and not plastic cups or nylon as the two are synthetic. They contain chemicals that will dissolve into the food being cooked.

Please try to learn how to wrap moin moin leaves or use tin containers for health sake.

Cheers!

OP, you really tried.

when next you want to cook moinmoin, please use rodo with tatashe or shombo in place of tomato. post the pictures on this thread and let us compare colours.

I know it is a matter of choice, but give it a trial..
