It’s really a global warming!

Yap! Back to what I have for you today! Will be sharing with you guys, how to make homemade beans flour.

Yes! I said, how to make it right in your kitchen and bid farewell to buying beans flour if you always do.

I will be relieving you, especially those of you that pass through the stress of always washing beans beans each time you want to make moi moi or Akara.

Will be taken off that stress, LOL! I love you guys so much and will share tips that will always make cooking fun.

School has resumed, and don’t want to deprive my children enjoying akara or moi moi as breakfast before leaving for school.

By the time I start calculating the 5-10 minutes it will take me to wash beans, then grind, taken all that into consideration, I will not hesitate to go for a plan B.

I didn’t just want that. Will always want to prepare my akara and moi moi whenever I wish without wasting so much time.

If you are also planning to go buy beans flour , relax you will learn how to do that.

There are two method of processing beans into flour, which are with and without the outter skin.

Homemade beans flour is flour made out of beans. It’s homemade on account of the beans being processed into flour from home.It is used in most Nigerian homes.

Beans is one of major staple in Nigeria and can be used in the preparation of super delicious delicacies such as beans and corn (Adalu), beans porridge, beans and plantain, beans and rice.

It’s the raw material for moi moi and akara, which of course is the people’s delight.

Akara and moi moi which is a super breakfast treat can be taken with pap. Akara also goes with bread (my favorite!) and moi moi with soaked garri.

Beans flour is also produced and processed in companies to meet a larger demand or for commercial purposes.

People are migrating into taking flour-based food on account of the time it saves and also the preservation.

Flour-based food such as yam flour,wheat flour, cassava flour, rice flour, cocoyam flour, potato flour, plantain flour, and beans flour can stay fresh for months if properly preserved.
