Scoop paste into oiled cup cake tins or molds.

*Moinmoin is a steamed dish, always ensure that your moinmoin is elevated above the water in the pot it is cooked in, i use a steam pot
It should take between 20- 30 minutes to get the meal cooked.
Once done turn off the heat, take out the cooked moin moin from molds or tins and pipe the topping.

For the topping.
