Here’s a Recipe for Cameroonian Koki Beans (Moin Moin) by Precious Kitchen on BN Cuisine



Hi, friends! In this episode of Precious Kitchen, I – Precious Nkeih, will show you how to make the perfect Koki Beans: spongy, well seasoned, moist and so delicious!

Koki beans is a savory pudding made with black eyed peas (koki beans) and mostly sold on the streets in Cameroon. It is quite similar to the Nigerian Moin Moin but this uses very minimal ingredients and sometimes leaves are added to the mixture.

Hope you enjoy watching!

My name is Precious... literally! I change diapers, cook food and write stuff. I spend a great part of my days calculating how to deal with the mountains of laundry that await me. Sometimes, I ignore the dishes in the sink and just sit and eat pop corn in the living room because body nobi fayawood.

    Wow, it looks delicious! It’s like adding spinach into your moin-moin mix. Such a nutritious addition. Thanks for sharing, Precious!

    This is what colonialism did to south-eastern nigeria and the cameroons, we were one people and they came to divide us with a border. Efik and Oron peoples in Nigeria and the Ejagham and Ekoi all in that same region.

    This food is just like what Efik people call ‘Ekoki’ and they use corn to make it. And the use of banana leaves is rampant in that area too. If not for technology and exposure, we would be living in total isolation and ignorance of each other

    You are right, Mrs Pangolo. We are basically the same people : same food, same culture, different countries.
    We equally make the corn version. We call it “koki corn”. The food fusion in Africa is amazing!
    Thanks for your comment and so sorry for the late reply.
