MOIN-MOIN ELEMI-MEJE (Rich moin-moin with seven lives)
The so called seven lives of this dish is derived from the seven different garnishes incorporated into the basic mixture during preparation i:e.cooked sliced Kidneys, chicken, tongue, prawns,corned beef, flaked smoked fish and boiled eggs
Soak the beans for 5 minutes, wash thoroughly to remove skin. Grind or liquidize until smooth. If you haven't got a steamer, arrange a false base with leaves or tin foil and bring to boil. Mix the ground beans with other ingredients, add the warm water a little at a time until mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon. Place mixture on clean leaves and wrap into parcels, arrange parcels carefully in the pot of boiling water, cover with a tight fitting lid avoid steam escaping, and steam for 1 hour or until moyin-moyin is cooked. Refill pot with boiling water if dry during cooking process. The parcels of beans should be firm to the touch after exposure to the air for a few minutes. Unwrap the leaves and serve with cold eko. The mixture can also be steam dariole moulds or foil container.
