You might be wondering if money bag is now edible. Not to worry, this one is.
Money bag is a snacks/small chops, filled with minced/shredded chicken, or any protein of your choice, with vegetables, wrapped in the shape of money bag.
It is very popular in Thailand and it is called ‘thung thong’, meaning golden bags. People usually give out ‘thung thong’ during the New Year festival to wish each other money or gold.
The money bag is gaining popularity in Nigeria now and it is mostly served alongside other small chops such as samosa, spring rolls and puff-puff.
To make money bag, you will need:
Chicken (or any protein of your choice)
Wash your chicken properly and cut into small pieces. Put inside a pot and put on fire. Add onion, crushed ginger and garlic, salt and seasoning and bring to a boil. After it properly boiled, shred it with your hand or with a hand blender.
Cut the green and red bell peppers and add to the shredded chicken. Mix properly and set aside.
To make the money bag wrap, add flour, salt and vegetable oil in a bowl. Add water as you mix but make sure the batter remains thick.
Rub the batter round inside a non-stick frying pan with your hand. Make sure it is wide and round and thick enough so it is easy to wrap. Put it on low heat and once it cooks, peel it off. Make as many wraps as you need.
Once you are done, place each wrap on a flat surface, then take your chicken mixture and put inside. Make sure it is not too much and not too little. Lift it and fold it to make a money bag. After folding, use the spring onion to tie it so the chicken inside can be well-secured. Do this till you have exhausted the chicken mixture.
After this, put oil in a frying pan and place on high heat. Drop the money bag inside the oil and fry till it is golden brown. Transfer into a paper towel for the oil to drain.
Your money bag is ready!

“Businesses are suffering. How can we be losing over 95 per cent of oil production to thieves? Look at the Bonny Terminal that should be receiving over 200, 000 barrels of crude oil daily, instead it receives less than 3,000 barrels, leading the operator @Shell, to declare force majeure.
“Why are we paying taxes if our security agencies can’t stop this? It is clear that the reason Nigeria is unable to meet its OPEC production quota is not because of low investment but because of theft, pure and simple!
“Meanwhile, oil producing countries are smiling as their foreign reserves rising. What is Nigeria’s problem? We need to hold our leaders more accountable!”
Elumelu urged Nigerians to be more vocal and demand accountability from government as the 2023 general election draw closer. He added that only leaders who can deliver on their mandates can change Nigeria’s trajectory.
“Elections are coming – security and resources need to be everyone’s agenda – let’s be vocal for our nation’s priority.
“Evil prevails when good people are silent. We need to be vocal about 2023. Let’s focus on Nigeria. Demand and advocate for leaders that deliver. In 2023, Nigeria must be on a strong trajectory for progress and development,” he said.
