Uma (Thaumatococcus Daniellii) leaf is the Moi Moi wrapper you should go for at all times.
Uma Leaves is botanically called Thaumatococcus daniellii. Uma leaf plant belongs to the family Marantaceae. It is commonly referred to as miraculous fruit, miraculous berry, serendipity berry and katamfe/katempfe. In Nigeria, it is popular referred to as soft cane.
Moinmoin Leaves x10: The scientific name for Moin Moin leaves is Thaumatococcus daniellii and it is not the same thing as banana leaves. … In Ibo, they are called Uma leaves. Moi moi leaves contain a sweet protein called thaumatin which is used in the development of sweeteners and turns sour food sweet.
Soak beans a day before so it is readily available to use on the day (keep refrigerated).
Banana leaves are inexpensive to buy — roughly $3.00-4.00 for a large pack. Buy banana leaves fresh or frozen in large, flat plastic bags at your local Asian supermarket (check the freezer if you can’t find them on the shelf or in the produce section).

Just like moin moin, the beans is soaked until soft and the outer peels removed. It is then pureed and seasoned with salt, seasoning cubes, palm oil and pepper. Instead of steaming, however, the puree is scooped and deep fried in vegetable oil. Akara is served with custard, moin-moin or bread.
Beans are a good source of protein, B vitamins, iron, copper, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus. They are naturally low in fat, free of saturated fat and cholesterol-free.
Prayer plants are generally tolerant of lower light areas. In the winter, when the plants go into dormancy (and sometimes die back completely), provide them with bright light to maintain growth.
Light: Partial to full direct sunlight. Water: Water when the soil feels dry to the touch. Keep soil moist and not waterlogged. Fertiliser: Feed with slow release pellets or liquid fertiliser once a month.
Ideal conditions for prayer plants are indirect light, medium to high humidity, moderately moist soil and well-draining containers and medium. If you notice edges turning brown on prayer plants, any one of these conditions may need to be addressed. The plant needs light but can burn in a southern window.
Soak the beans in lots of water for at least 4 hours (I soaked mine overnight). Clear the sink (you will need access to running water). Run the beans underneath some water, stir vigorously. The peeled skin will float in the water surface, pour the water through a colander.
Make sure you use honey beans (ewa oloyin) or drum don’t use white beans because it will turn black when the moi moi is done. … Rinse the beans clean and blend with half of the onion, red bell pepper, rodo (habanero) and blend until smooth.
“MoinMoin” is a common Frisian expression, “Moin” meaning “(Good) Day“, and “MoinMoin” being an emphasis, i.e. “A Very Good Day” or “Top of the morning to you!”. … Moin is derived from lower German “moi” = good.
Store fresh vegetables like ugu, water leaf, or ewedu, in tightly sealed plastic bags with a bit of air trapped in before refrigerating. Dry vegetables can be wrapped in newspaper and left on a shelf or countertop.
If you are in Nigeria, the best ingredient to use is tatashe pepper. I do not like the taste of red bell peppers in my Moi Moi hence I do not recommend it but you can try it and see if you like it. Nutmeg gives the Moi Moi its classic taste.
