MoiMoi with Unpeeled Beans

Moi moi - moinmoin - peeled - unpelled - beans - nigerian - food - recipe


Truth be told, the first time I tried moimoi with unpeeled beans  I was still in primary school, my aunty had visited us and made some. I will say it was extremely obvious the beans wasn’t peeled as the texture of the moimoi was very coarse, however the resulting moimoi was extremely more filling than usual

Fast forward to two years ago when I made some moi moi using quinoa , I toyed with the idea of perfecting my aunty’s recipe but I did not. In 2014, I finally did try it but I wasn’t very thrilled with the end result. I made a critical mistake, I used black eyed beans which left dark spots in the moi moi. Although extremely delicious and very filling, I knew I could do better.

Moi moi with Unpelled Beans

2014 attempt using Black eyed beans

This attempt was perfect. I took lessons from my aunty’s creation and leveraged my mistake from last year. I promise you, no one will know you did not peel the skin off the beans. You will also find this moimoi to be extremely filling, this is because we didn’t get rid of the fiber by taking off the skin.


  • Brown beans (oloyin or drum) – 2 cups
  • Medium onion – 1/2 
  • Red bell pepper (Tatashe) –  2 (chopped)
  • Scotch bonnet pepper (ata Rodo) –  1
  • Eggs – 4  (boil, peel & slice 2)
  • Ground crayfish – 1 Tablespoon
  • Palm oil- 2-3 Tablespoons
  • Bouillon cube (Maggi) – 1-2 cubes
  • Salt (to taste)

Other : Aluminum loaf or muffin pan for steaming, aluminum foil


  • Cover beans with generous amount of water and leave to soak overnight


  • Combine beans, peppers, onion and 1.5 cups water in a blender, blend to a smooth
 batter. Leave batter to rest for  about 5 minutes and blend again



  • Pour batter into a large bowl, crack in raw eggs. Set aside
  • Dissolve salt, palm oil, crayfish and maggi in 2 tablespoons of boiling water, set aside to cool. once cooled, add to batter
  • With a turning pin (omo orogun) or electric mixer- Mix the batter thoroughly (this is to incorporate air into the batter and fluff the resulting moi moi).  mix for about 5 -10 minutes . Taste and adjust for seasoning




  • Add 4 cups water to a large pot, set on high heat and bring to a boil
  • Oil the pan (cupcake pan in this case). portion moi moi batter into pan and top with slices of boiled eggs . Cover the loaf pan tightly with some aluminum foil


  • Place the batter filled loaf pan in the pot of water ( it shouldn’t be covered in water), place a tight lid over the pot and reduce the heat to medium. Steam for 45-60 minutes (alternatively, steam for 45 minutes in an electric steamer)

Recipe note:

  • If you do not have time to soak beans overnight. Cover with very hot water for 20 minutes.
  • When making moimoi, the batter consistency is critical to the density of the end result. Your batter should not be too thick, it should be very close  to the batter pictured. If you find that your batter is thicker, add water and mix it some more.
  • Make use of Red beans, Black eyed beans will leave black spots in the moi moi
  • It is important that you rest the batter after the first blend, this enables the beans to absorb more water and fluff up during cooking
  • I highly recommend that you soak the beans overnight
  • feel free to play up the profile of the moi moi by adding in other spices. Ginger, thyme and chipotle pepper all work great in moi moi
  • When steaming in a pot, the wider the better. you never want the steaming utensil covered in water. If the water starts to dry up during steaming, simply add in more water
  • You can choose to wrap the moi moi in leaves (Ewe Eran) or banana leaves if you have some

    Hi Ronke!
    I was looking at food recipes on YouTube and through an internet rabbit trail I found your website and this recipe. I am not familiar with Nigerian food, and am excited to find your recipes. I am not at all familiar with moi moi and from the ingredients it looks like it will taste amazing!
    I have one question: I have all of the ingredients in the recipe easily at hand in my pantry and fridge pretty much all of the time, except the crayfish. Do you have any recommendations for a possible substitute? What about shrimp? That is always readily available here on the Chesapeake Bay (thought it probably wouldn’t be TOO hard to find the crawdads–I just don’t think they are available without having to drive cross county).
    Thanks for the great site and shares. I am excited to try this with coconut fried rice and maybe a Nigerian Stew.

      One of two possible issues. Either the beans wasn’t well blended (You want your batter to be extremely smooth, no grit at all) or you added in two much water. I hope that helps for next time

    Hello 9jafoodie, that you for your great blog. I tried to make it today but I used mini loaf pans. I think I overcooked it. I did 1 hour at 350 because I kept sliding a knife in and it was not coming out clean. Now, it’s dry! Please advice on better timing for next time.

      1 hours is very long. The toothpick test or fork test works. however you don’t want a completely dry fork, just no drip. I think 35 minutes is plenty at 350.

    Hello 🙂 I’ve never cooked any Nigerian food but I really want to try this. I have some questions. I apologize in advance for the lengthy post… Do I have to add the 2 raw eggs? I’m worried it will taste “eggy”. I live in Canada (I read in your comments that you live in Canada as well) please where can I buy brown beans and also where can I buy crayfish? Lastly, did you use a frying pan to cook the moin moin? I can’t find a frying pan large enough to fit a 12 cupcake pan. Is the water filled just half way in the pan? I always thought you had to totally immerse the moin moin in water? I hope you are patient enough to answer my 1 million questions lol. Thank you very much. I’m a fan 🙂

      No problem Gee, we are here to answer your questions.
      1) the egg is not a must. I can guarantee that the dish will not taste eggy.
      2) crayfish – from your local Nigerian store.
      3) I used a wok. moimoi is actually meant to be steamed. it shouldn’t be submerged in water. If you have a steamer, that works. You can also cut the cupcake pan if you are using the disposable type.

      As indicated in the recipe, I used Black eyed beans the first time I tried this. It was delicious but the black eye stayed in the moimoi (First picture)

      Yes Nneka, add in two raw eggs. The eggs greatly enhance the texture of the moi moi.

      You definitively can. Bake at 350f for 20-25 minutes or until set. I will advice that you bake it covered, this will ensure that the batter doesn’t dry out. You can also steam-bake. you place the baking pan in another pan filled with water.

    I will try this because the stress of peeling the beans can be tedious and time consuming.
    well done.

      I completely agree and leaving the fiber on makes it much more filling too.
