Ekuru and Ata Dindin

Ekuru is a popular dish among the Yorubas, it is also called Ofuloju. It is simply plain beans eaten with sauce of choice, but it tastes so good!

Growing up I had always seen my friend’s parents make that for them and I wondered to myself what it was, cos the process was quite similar to Moi Moi, just that a lot more ingredients goes into the making of Moi Moi, whilst Ekuru is almost plain.

I know you’ve probably underestimated the deliciousness of plain beans, but this recipe will give you a better perspective as well as open your eyes to the limitless possibilities of beans and how beans is just delicious on its own.

Ekuru is usually served with sauce (ata dindin or obe ata), if you’ll like to go the extra, simply pair with Eko and serve with sauce of choice.

If you are a Fit-fam or Vegan, then you just might want to add this to your diet plan, as it is very high in protein.


Beans (1 cup)

Water (for washing and grinding the beans to form a paste)

Salt (Optional)

A pinch of ground Potash, also known as “Akaun/Kaun” (Optional)

Uma leaves/Moi Moi Leaves (Optional) - You can make use of any container or Moi Moi pack of choice.


1. Wash and peels the beans.

2. Add the peeled beans in a clean blender, add a little water and blend until it becomes smooth.

3. Pour blended mixture into a bowl, add a little water, salt (optional), ground potash (optional), then stir until it turns fluffy.

4. Get your cleaned leaves, pack or container (whichever one you have available), scoop some of the bean mixture into them the place in a steamer or pot of hot water and steam for 30 minutes or until it solidifies, just like you do with Moi Moi.

5. Remove from heat and allow to cool off for sometime before serving. You can serve with sauce of choice.

Side Note: Potash makes the paste fluffier and also makes the cooking process shorter, but it is optional.


Add palm oil to pot and allow to bleach a little, add in chopped onions, seasoning, salt to taste, cleaned kpanla fish (Eja Kika), kpomo, and blended pepper mix, stir and allow to cook for 5 minutes. 
Keep stirring to prevent it from burning, cover and allow simmer for about 3 minute.

Remove from heat.

Your sauce is READY šŸ˜‹
