Can I hug you? Consider yourself hugged! LOL! I had no idea you could make moi-moi in a loaf pan. At first, I thought it was bread...This will definitely be way less messy than using leaves and "other wrappers"...Meanwhile, I did not expect to see palmoil there...Nice twist...You're just...TALENTED!

stelzz said...

was thinking, what's the best thing to use in making moi moi? foil, cellophane, tins or plastics? a friend of mine made moi moi and gave me some. hers was made in tins. its still in my fridge and dunno if i should eat it cos i dunno if its been well preserved.what do you think?

Titi's Passion said...

Haven't made this in forever, cos of the wahala in making it, lol. Just go ahead and save my share and mail it:)

9jaFOODie said...

@stelzz: how long have you had the moin moin in the fridge for? Using thin isn't healthy because they are not cooking grade metal. try foil or baking cups, they work just as great.

@Miss Titi: Try using a loaf pan, it is so much easier.

please what is yoruba name for canola oil



thanks

9jaFOODie said...

@Anon: since the canola crop is mostly cultivated in Canada and Australia, I believe it will be presented in Nigeria as "Canola oil" I don't think there is a local name for it, not that I know of anyways.
