"Ewa Agoyin". by akamzjane(f): 4:21am On Apr 11, 2015
I really miss this food ever since I left lagos I haven't eaten ewa agoyin the way I do.Yes! It takes time but the taste is worth it. Ewa Agoyin simply means plain boiled beans eaten with a pepper sauce.

Ingredients
Beans (Brown/Black eyed): 2 cigar cups
Red Palm Oil: about 5 cooking spoons
Plum Tomatoes: 5 big ones
Crayfish (a handful)
Onions – 1 big bulb
Pepper & Salt to taste
Seasoning – 2 Maggi/Knorr cubes

Before you cook Ewa Agoyin
Soak the beans in cold water for 5 hours. Boil the beans for 5 minutes and discard the water. Rinse the beans in cold water and set aside. This soaking and pre-cooking process will help reduce the gas inducing elements. For more on that visit: How to Reduce Beans Bloating.
Chop the onions, grind the crayfish and pound the pepper.
Blend the tomatoes and boil the tomato puree till all the water has dried from it.
Pre-cook the diced onions without any added water. The aim is to get it to caramelize a bit so that it will take less time to fully caramelize during frying.
Cooking Directions

Cook the beans till done. For Ewa Agoyin, the beans needs to be very soft.
Note: If you have a pressure cooker, beans is one of the staple foods you will want to use it for. It considerably reduces the cooking time.
When the beans is done, add salt, leave to dry up all the water and set aside.
To cook the Agoyin, pour the palm oil into a separate dry pot. Allow to heat up till the oil starts smoking and the red colour changes to clear. It is better to do this at medium heat so that the oil does not get too hot too quickly. Remember to turn off your smoke alarm before doing this. smiley

To keep the smoke to a minimum and still have the traditional taste of Ewa Agoyin, I use vegetable oil and when it is very hot, I add a small amount of palm oil.now add the precooked onions and stir continuously till the onions is fully caramelized. It should be very dark in colour.
Add the parboiled tomato puree and stir continuously till you cannot tell the difference between the tomatoes and onions.
Add the pepper, crayfish, stock cubes and salt to taste. You can also add a little water at this point if your want.
Stir very well and bring to the boil. The Ewa Agoyin is ready!
Serve by dishing the beans into a plate and scooping some Agoyin stew on it. Ewa Agoyin can be eaten on its own, with soft and stretchy bread (known as Ewa ati Bread) or with fried plantains.
