For me birthdays and Christmas are incomplete without moi moi and/or akara covered with sweet custard. Delicious.
I am not sure how unlikely or unorthodox a pairing they are but I know my Nigerian cousin looked at me strangely when I pour custard over the moi moi.
In Nigeria they are more likely to eat it with pap (ogi to the Yorubas) which has slightly sharper taste.
I think I like the combination of savoury and sweet.
Many years ago I set up a Facebook group ‘moi moi and custard’ but strangely enough I am the only member…
Continuing on the savoury and sweet theme, we had scrambled eggs with garlic and home made Magdelenas. Once again delicious.
