Super! How To Prepare Moi Moi Roll-up

how to prepare moi moi roll-up

In Nigeria, traditional moi-moi is wrapped in banana leaves, while some people prefer using plastic plates or white nylon to cook theirs and that is why I would like to give it more debut by changing it to “moi-moi roll-up” with some modifications, but both the ‘traditional and the moi-moi roll-up’ have almost the same taste.

It takes about 20 minutes with already peeled beans. it’s amazingly simple to make and present beautifully. Double or triple the recipe to make a bigger batch. Recipe as is will serve two.


  • 1 cup peeled beans
  • 1/4 medium Onion (Halved)
  • 1 Red Pepper (Tatashe) (Halved )
  • Small Ginger (peeled)
  • 1 Sprig green onion (optional)
  • 2 eggs ( 1 boiled, 1 raw)
  • 1 tablespoon oil or butter
  • 1 cube maggi
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper Flakes
  • Salt – To taste




Preheat oven to 350F

In a blender : combine beans, onion, 1 part red pepper, 1 part onion,  1/2 cup water and ginger. Puree to a fine paste.


Chop left over pepper and onion. Slice up the egg and mince the green onion if using. Set aside.

Melt butter. Add in maggi, salt, pepper flakes. Stir to combine. Add in pureed beans and raw egg. Mix well using a mixing pin or hand mixer (3-5 minutes).


Line an oven tray with culinary parchment (or aluminum foil) . Pour in the moimoi batter and spread out evenly. Shake pan gently to distribute.Top with chopped ingredients.


Bake moimoi for 15 minutes (until lifted at the edges and set).

As soon as you remove the moimoi from the oven, start the roll. Starting at one short end , peel off parcment until rolled to the end.


Serve Moimoi roll by itself or with pap, custard or garri.
