How to Prepare Plantain Moi-moi (ukpo ogede)


  • 2 medium-sized ripe plantains
  • 200g of unripe plantain flour or corn meal (corn flour)
  • 1 cooking spoonful of ground crayfish
  • 1 handful of deboned boiled fish or fresh prawns
  • 1 cooking spoonful of palm oil or vegetable oil
  • Seasoning cubes
  • 1 medium-sized onion
  • Fresh pepper
  • Salt
  • Containers or moi-moi leaves

Cooking steps

  • Pour the unripe plantain flour or corn flour into a bowl, add a little warm water and mix well until you get a smooth paste.
  • Wash, peel and slice the ripe plantains, blend with crayfish, pepper and onions. Blend into a smooth paste and pour into the bowl containing the unripe plantain paste.
  • Mix properly and add a little warm water to get a lighter but not watery paste. Add the palm oil, seasoning cubes and salt, then mix properly.
  • Scoop the plantain mixture into the container, add the cooked fish or fresh prawns, then seal tightly.
  • Put a pot of water or steamer to boil, place the containers into the pot and allow to cook for 45mins to 1hr. When the moi-moi solidifies, know it is ready (add water to the pot from time to time as the water dries up).
  • Bring out the plantain moi-moi and place on a tray, leave to cool before you serve. You can serve with rice, pap, oatmeal or custard.
