I use a foil pack, covered and bake for 180 degrees for 40 minutes
Yaaaaaaaaaay. Houston we have lift off!!!!!!!!!! Only 5 extra minutes and BOOM!!!!!!! I have gotten the perfect temperature. Bake Moin Moin at 180 Deg C for 40 minutes ??????????????????. No burnt edges????????????. It looks like Cake, doesn't it. If I can't get baking cake right, at least I can get baking Moin Moin right ???. Tag a friend, share the news ???
Early last year, on So You Think You Can Cook (Facebook food group), one of our members, Cee Leeya O. asked why we add boiled eggs to Moin Moin when we can cook the eggs in the batter itself. I read that and thought, wait oh, that's true, why do we double cook the eggs. The texture is usually rubbery, which I have never really liked, but accepted it as, that's how we do it. Many shared the same sentiments. Later on, Cee put up pictures of before and after. Using the eggs raw, and it looked fine. Sometimes, out of habit, I follow rote routine and boil the eggs first. On days like this when I am super busy, I just use them raw and keep it moving. The eggs cook well, 10 out of 10 times. There is a lot of rote routine in cooking, it isn't just peculiar to Nigerian food, but with examples like this, when rote routine, doesn't make any sense, try another method to achieve the same goal. That is why when I put up any #thenewnigeriancookery method of cooking, and some people disagree on the basis of "that's not how we've been doing things", I want to tell them to #Gerrarahere mehn!!! Your ancestors didn't communicate using mobile phones. You are a fine one to talk. Go, throw away your phone and send letters by post. ??? By the way, these are going into the oven. I bake Moin moin too. It cooks faster ???
