One good day about four years ago during ramadan, I was chatting on phone with my cousin on how I felt like breaking my fast with moin moin and pap but couldn’t be bothered with the task of peeling beans. I had been using bean powder but using bean powder never gave the result peeled beans give so I had stopped using bean powder by then.
Well my cousin went how is peeling beans a task? 5minutes and you’re done.
Me : habaa..Mosunnn! 5minutes bawo.
Her: ehn now. Haven’t you been introduced to the blender method?
At this point I was confused and asked her what blender method and she went ahead and described what and how to go about it.
It sounded too good to be true and I was sceptical but she told me that was the method she’s been using for months. I immediately got up from where I was lying down and ran to the kitchen. The doubting Thomas in me made me caution myself and try it out with small quantity of beans that even if it all went wrong i wouldn’t be pained. Lol.
So readers, find below the easy steps to peeling beans with blender.
Soak the beans in water for 3 minutes. (not longer than the time stated please). I usually just put the dry beans in my blender, add water and wait for 3 minutes.
Pour the beans into the blender and add water to cover the beans. For example if the beans stand on the 400ml mark , the water should be at the 1200ml mark. It is also important not to overload the blender so if you want to peel large quantity, do it in batches.
Now turn on to the lowest button of your blender for 2 seconds and stop. Repeat this two more times.
The shaft would have separated from the beans by now so all you need to do after this is to pour the beans into a bowl and rinse.
See how clean the beans is? all it takes is about 5minutes. No more breaking of back to peel beans! 😊
