Sweet Mung Bean Pudding Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 250 g (1 cup) dried split yellow mung beans, soaked in water for 4 hours
    • 300 g (11/2 cups) sugar
    • 250 ml (1 cup) water
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 3 tablespoons cold water
    • 250 ml (1 cup) coconut cream combined with 1 teaspoon salt

Method :

    1. Place the mung beans in a pot of water and boil until they are soft enough to be mashed between your fingers, about 20 minutes without presoaking, or less time with presoaking. Do not overcook until they are falling apart. Drain and set aside.
    2. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved and turn into a thin syrup, 3–5 minutes. Add the cooked mung beans and stir to mix well.
    3. Add the cornstarch mixture and cook until the cornstarch is clear and the mung bean mixture thickens, 3–5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
    4. To serve, divide the pudding into individual serving bowls and drizzle with the coconut cream and salt mixture. Serve warm.
