peel beans with food processor

I have heard about how you can peel beans using a blender or food processor, I never really paid any attention to it as I am very comfortable using my hands to peel. I made akara recently and I thought now would be a good time to try it. I tell you, I had my doubts and I kept saying to myself, if it doesn’t turn out right, I would just use it like that.  I was so wrong, it works like magic and was pretty quick too. The whole process took roughly about 10 minutes which is not bad at all considering I used a small amount of beans.

If you have not tried this method and you have a blender or food processor, you are missing. When next you want to make akara or moi moi for you and your family, do try this quick method out. It would be worth your time.
