It is worth it.

I am not a huge fan of green bean but I like red bean though. The way I like it as in Red Bean Creme. Smooth and yummy.

Therefore, I always look forward to wedding banquet to see whether they have it as their dessert. The only thing is that it is always too sweet to my liking.

This dessert involved a lot of work even though I got super duper machines to do the job and the outcome is satisfactory.

What you need

600g red bean (soak overnight)
14 cups of water
250g lotus seed (soak and remove stem)
Rock sugar to taste
Pandan Leaves

Method

Boil red bean with water till soft. Drain but keep the water.

Put it in a blender and blend till very fine paste. Sieve through a fine sieve. You need to press them through the sieve. Put them back into the water.

Steam lotus seed till semi soft.

Add lotus seed, pandan leaves and rock sugar into the red bean soup.

Simmer till sugar dissolved.

Note: Depending how creamy you want them to be, dilute it with water accordingly.

  8. I will not be able to consume the whole portion of this recipe and would like to make popsicles for the remaining portion. I wonder if I need to thicken the rest and if so, how? Thanks.

  9. Nope you don't need to thicken it. Just pour the remaining into the ice lollie tray and freeze. My advice is best to consume soonest as your freezer might not be only for ice lollies.
