In the Nigerian local parlance, this type of moi moi is known as moi moi elemi meji or moi moi ndu abuo and here’s why….it has got two lives in it, no jokes. It’s got fresh mackerel fish and boiled egg within every wrap, just the way i like it.
Now let me ask you this – Are you a leafy moi moi type of person or a cup moi moi kinda person? Personally, i love moi moi in leaves because it has its own flavor but if there’s no uma leaf available to wrap it up then i’d rather stick to cups. Also, i like my moi moi colorful and not brown so i always ensure i add some colorful peppers like tatashe and shombo to the mix…this brings out the color as shown in the pictures. Also for a smooth texture to be achieved, the whole mix must be ground till smooth. You can achieve this by using a good blender or a mill. Without further ado, here’s how to make this dish.
and add about two spoons of the mixture in the folded leaves.
