Koki Corn

Koki Corn is the African version of Mexican fresh corn tamales. Corn is ground, mixed with ingredients then wrapped in banana leaves (or aluminium foil) and cooked. I love to call it Cameroonian fresh corn tamales. My Nigerian friends would probably call this “corn moin moin” because it is like moin moin, a savoury pudding made with blackeyed peas. The difference is this one is made with corn then some leaves are added to it just like with Cameroonian Koki Beans. I just love meals that are made this way – the wrapping and steaming way
