Corn Moinmoin

Savoury Steamed Corn pudding. It is also called Abari, Ekoki, Ekusu, Sapala, Nri Oka etc.

Yesterday I bought some fresh corn with the hope of making Adalu. I started reading some comments on my Ekuru post on Facebook and some commenters made reference to Abari/Sapala.  I decided I was going to give it a try. I combed through the internet for recipes and I realised it was same as moinmoin only that people put their own spin on it.

–   Wrap in leaves (traditional) or in a polythene bag or tin foil or ramekins… whatever rocks your boat.

–    Steam cook till it is set and all cooked through.

This is my first time trying this or tasting it and I nailed it, it tastes so good, I don’t know why I’ve never had it before. Le hubs also liked it but because he is not adventurous, I’m foresee me being the only one relishing this 3 times out of 4 when I make it again,

In keeping with my portion control and keeping my eating clean I served mine with Steamed Vegetable – Ugu, onions and mackerel – .
