Moi Moi Recipe: Step by Step Procedure On How To Make Nigerian Moi Moi

Moi moi a versatile food in Nigeria; it pairs well with akamu, acha pudding, garri, jollof rice and sometimes Quaker oat; it is usually prepared by steaming.
Instead of steaming your moi moi, you can also bake it in the oven by placing your loaf pan or moi moi bowls in a bigger loaf pan filled with water and then bake at 350F for 35- 40 minutes or until the liquid dries in the moi moi.

Moi moi can be wrapped in banana leaves or with ewe, this is the traditional way of making moi moi, however, if you live where there is no access to moi moi leaves, you can use containers, foil papers or plates to make your moi moi, these work well for this recipe too. Below are the ingredients you need for moi moi. See the Video above for the short video on how to make moi moi.

top and the ones at the top to the bottom of the pot so that the heat get distributed evenly to each of the bowls. Also, add small quantity
of water at time while cooking the Moi Moi if needed.

8. After cooking moi moi for another extra 20 minutes, insert a fork or tooth pick inside it to check if the liquid is dried, ones it comes out dry
it means moi moi is done. Take the pot off heat, moi moi is cooked serve warm with rice or pap.
