The top picture is a delicacy Nigerians know as Moinmoin. The similar looking bottom picture is called Abara and is a popular delicacy in Bahia, a state in Brazil with 90% black population. Both are made with same ingredients, prepared the same way and the only main difference is Abara is wrapped in banana leaves which is different from what Nigerians use. African culture in Brazil and other parts of south America and Cuba has survived in many forms having been transplanted via slave trade and in many ways much more than in Africa presently. Yoruba language is spoken (and deities worshiped) in Bahia, Brazil and many other parts of South America. So when next you visit Brazil, you can try Abara if you feel like some moinmoin!!
