  • Add Dilmah green tea into the mixture and stir well. Next add the vegetable oil and combine until all ingredients are mixed well together.
  • Add salt to taste and stir again.
  • Line the base of your cooking pot with Uma leaves.
  • Dish the Moi Moi and put the eggs into the Uma leaves and carefully wrap the leaves.
  • Place the Moi Moi in the pot, pour some water to cover it and allow to steam/cook for 45 minutes.
  • As the Moi Moi starts to cook, add a little water from time to time, so that it does not burn and stick to the pan.
  • Moi Moi can be served with vegetables, so wash and slice carrot, cabbage, cucumber, and lettuce, toss them together.
  • Serve with Moi M.
