Step By Step How to Make Moin Moin/Moi Moi (Nigerian steamed bean pudding)

Moi Moi /Moin Moin (Nigerian steamed bean pudding) is a good dish accessory in Nigeria. It's commonly seen accompanying Jollof Rice, Fried Plantain, Fried Rice,Akamu (Pap, Ogi), Custard,  etc. It could even be eaten alone as a snack with a soft drink to wash it down.

Because of popularity, Moi Moi is often served in parties, dinners and other special occasions.

I usually cook Moi Moi in a large quantity and store in my freezer so these quantities of ingredients make 12 aluminium bags of Moi Moi. Each bag weighs 420g.
    5 tablespoons ground crayfish
    3 cigar cups or 750g Beans (Brown/Black eyed)
    4 big stock cubes
    2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
    3 tatashe peppers or 800g watery tomato puree (sold outside Nigeria)
    2 big onions
    1 habanero pepper
    2 litres of cool or warm water
    20cl vegetable oil
    Salt (to taste)

Moi Moi Accessories

Add some of the following to the Moi Moi

    Hard boiled eggs: Slice the eggs into small pieces.
    Bone Marrow: Cook the bone marrow with spices and herbs till done then enhance the Moi Moi at the mixing stage.
    Corned beef: separate into small chunks and enhance the moi moi during mixing. You can even enhance the moi moi after dishing then into cooking bowls or foil bags.



    Aluminium foil or
    Plastic Bowls or
    Uma Leaves(Thaumatococcus Daniellii)

Tools I used

    Deep Pot
    Chopping board

Notes about the ingredients

    The tomato puree gives the Moi Moi its classic peachy colour. If you're in Nigeria, the best ingredient to use is tatashe pepper. I do nothing like the taste of red bell peppers in my Moi Moi hence I do not recommend it but you can look at it and see if you want it.

    Nutmeg gives the Moi Moi its classic taste. If you've ever eaten Nigerian Moi Moi at an event and wondered why it tastes better compared to the ones you make, it's probably because you don't add nutmeg to your Moi Moi.

    2 litres of water is the precise volume of water that gives me the right texture of Moi Moi that I and my family love. Please be aware that this qauntity includes the water utilized in blending the beans. If using bone marrow, the total amount of stock must certanly be the main 2 litres of liquid you will use within mixing the Moi Moi. If after using this quantity and you're not pleased with the texture, adjust the total amount of water accordingly.

    It is better to use cool or heated water when mixing Moi Moi. You don't want to use heated water for this reason as it may cause the mix to be lumpy.

    Using the correct amount of oil in your Moi Moi ensures so it features a good texture and rolls off the tongue when you eat it but feel free to use any level of oil you want. And it's advisable to use tastless and odourless oils in your Moi Moi so that rules out olive oil.

When you cook Moi Moi

    Around three hours before cooking the moi moi, soak and wash the beans to get rid of the coat. When the entire coat has been removed, place the beans in a dish and pour enough water to cover it. Leave to soak for three hours. That is so that the best consistency is going to be achieved when you blend the beans.

    It is advisable to use one of eggs, bone marrow or corned beef, not the three at the exact same time. In the event that you use eggs, cook till hard boiled, cut into small pieces and set aside. If you want bone marrow, cook it with salt and Maggi / Knorr cubes and set aside the stock. If it's corned beef you should go for, open the can and separate the beef into small lumps.

    Now proceed and prepare the moi moi containers.

Next ...

    Wash the tatashe pepper (if using it). Ensure you remove the tatashe seeds as they have a tendency to give meals a bitter taste.

    Cut the onions into pieces, grind the crayfish with a dry mill. If using the heavy duty grinder in Nigerian markets, these won't be necessary.

    Crush the stock cubes and set aside. Wash the habanero/scotch bonnet peppers and set aside.

    Now that the beans is soaked (the bean seed is tender when you pinch it), it is time to blend it. It is very important that you use a very good blender for this purpose. The taste and feel of your Moi Moi depends so much on the consistency of the blend. If in doubt, put a small quantity of bean seeds in your home blender and grind to the best of its ability using as small quantity of water as possible. Feel the resulting paste with your fingers and if you notice any tiny pieces at all, then the blender is not good for Moi Moi. At this time, you may consider using the commercial heavy duty mills at your local market if you are in Nigeria. Yes, you have your health and hygiene concerns but most of the mill operators actually keep their mills clean. And they let you bring your own water and containers. So there you go!

Cooking Directions

    Blend the beans, tatashe or tomato puree, onions, crayfish, habanero pepper and ground nutmeg together with some of the water and pour the mix into a big enough bowl.

    Add the vegetable oil and the bone marrow stock (if this is what you have chosen to add to your moi moi).

    Slowly add the remaining water and stir the mixture at the same time till you get a good mix of all the ingredients.

    Add salt to taste and stir very well.

        Note: Moi Moi is one of the Nigerian food recipes that is prepared cold. All the mixing and adding of ingredients is done off the stove. That is to say, once you start cooking, there is no going back! You cannot decide to add more salt or seasoning or a new ingredient later. So getting it right at the mixing stage is very important.

    Pad the base of a big pot, pour some water and set on the stove. The depth of the water should be at most 1 inch.

    Dish the Moi moi mix into containers of your choice, add egg/bone marrow/corned beef to each container, seal/cover and set them in the pot.

    Add as small quantity of water as possible at a time while cooking the Moi Moi as detailed in preparation and use of moi moi containers so that the moi moi will not become watery when done. This is the case especially when using aluminium foil or uma leaves.

    The length of time you will cook your Moi Moi depends on the quantity and the Moi Moi container you used.

    The Moi Moi that gets done quickest is the one wrapped in Uma or Banana leaves, followed by Moi Moi wrapped in aluminum foils then the one that takes the most time is Moi Moi cooked in aluminium or plastic plates.

    But whatever Moi Moi container you use, it is advisable to cook your Moi Moi for at least 1 hour, before checking it. Confirm that it is done by putting a knife through it, if the knife is stained with Moi Moi paste, then the Moi Moi is not done, but if the knife just has a slight smear of Moi Moi, then it's done. Also, when you cut through the Moi Moi, the insides will be set and not watery.

    If you are cooking a few wraps of Moi Moi in a small pot on high heat, then it will only take about 45 minutes to get done while when you are cooking a large pot of Moi Moi, it will definitely take more than one hour.


Serve with chilled fruit juice, or coconut juice.
