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.
