Beans are among the most popular legumes in this part of the world. They are prepared in a couple ways to provide dishes of several sorts. For instance, they can be grinded to paste and used in preparation of 'Akara', as same time the paste can be added some other ingredients and diluted in water thereafter cooked to provide 'Moi-moi'.
They can also be prepared porridge. The process of cooking beans often takes loads of time due to the texture of seeds they are. As a result of this so many have learnt to employ some techniques in order to reduce it's cooking time. Some would throw a nail in their cooking pot which is unhealthy, some others would use catalysts of several sorts.
There is a simple yet healthy and effective method of having your beans get soft without burning your gas for a long time and without having to wait for a long time. Here is the process -
Get the quantity of beans you would love to prepare, pick out the stones inevitably present in them as well as some other dirt.
Wash thoroughly and set on fire for parboiling.
After the first boiling, sieve out the water so as to get rid of the chemicals present in the beans which most likely must have been used in it's preservation.
Thereafter pour in some fresh water, cut onions into some slices and add it in that water, then with your beans. Allow them to boil together. You may also add the other ingredients if you choose so.
The presence of onions would reduce it's toughness and have it soften more quickly reducing the cooking time.
This process is very easy and yet poses no potential harm as some other methods that involved artificial catalysts would. You can share with your friends. Do not forget to like and drop your comments.
