Here is how to make moi moi, I
want to talk about my favorite
recipe. the generally accepted
moi-moi in Nigeria. Moi-moi is a
very popular food in Nigeria, it
could be eaten alone or eaten
along side, rice, akamu(pap) and
several other foods in Nigeria.
The ingredients for moi moi
includes - Beans, groundnut oil,
tatashe, crayfish, salt, maggi
(seasoning), onions,
and either (minced meat, cooked
fish, mashed meat, corned beef,
fried fish, egg)
or a combination of two or three
can be used. tatashe is a red hot
chili pepper, purposefully used
for natural coloring.
It changes the color of the moi
moi to red.
Segregate three cups of beans
(remove sand and impurities) and
soak in cool water for 5 minutes
then begin washing. Wash and
squeeze hardly to remove the
shell, this may take up to 20
You just keep washing and
squeezing and sieving till the shell
is totally removed(it's not too
transfer into a container and
add the crayfish, onions, tatashe
(without seeds) and pepper(red)

How to Make Moi Moi

Once ground, while still in the
container, add maggi(seasoning),
ground-nut oil. just pour in the oil
and stir, add about two cooking
spoon full, add salt to taste.
Once the taste seem nice,
transfer into the moi- moi- plate
and drop inside the pot(to
prevent burning, a piece of
clothe is left underneath the pot)
you can place the plate above
each other provided the pot
would be properly covered. once
set, add water simultaneously,
like every ten minutes so it does
not float above the first plate.
A particular green leave is used
to wrap moi moi locally in Nigeria,
people say it tastes better than
the ones in plates, for me, I
hardly notice any different.
