Moin-Moin, Moyin- Moyin or Mai-Mai (as is known to Cameroonians): is a flavorful blend of skinless black-eyed peas, onions, green and habanero pepper that is steamed. The end result …. a pleasing pudding, with intense flavor, and lots of hidden treasures!
If you do not have skinless black-eyed peas available, buy the ones with skin on in the supermarket.
Soak them for about 15 minutes, pulse in the blender or food processor to break the peas (about 5- 10 times or about 10 to 15 seconds) you should do this in small quantities. In a large bowl soak the beans for about an hour or more, cover with water until tender.
Rub the peas between your hands to take the skin off . The skins will float to the top. Pour off the skins, into a colander; you may have to do this process several times. Most of the skin will come off the peas; Sort through the remaining peas to remove all the skin. Save the skinless peas for later use.
You can do this ahead of time and freeze it, to save time.
