Golden Bean Cakes Recipe

Golden Bean Cakes Recipe

Ingredients :

250 g mung beans

1/2 cup water
1 cup white sugar

Caster sugar


Sugar Syrup:

1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon water

 

Method :

Fill a bowl with cold water and soak the mung beans overnight of at least 24 hours. Then change the water a few times to wash the green skins away. Put into a saucepan with sufficient water to come just to the level of the beans and bring to the boil. Cook until beans are very soft. Drain thoroughly and while beans are still hot, mash to a smooth paste. Put sugar and water in a heavy-based saucepan and stir over moderate heat until the sugar dissolves. Add bean paste and cook, stirring occasionally at the start and more frequently as mixture begins to thicken. The cooking is read when the bean mixture is thick and starts to come away from side of pan. Allow to cool until it can be handled, and make small balls of the paste. Dip in sugar syrup then in caster sugar and leave to dry. Put in small paper cases.

To prepare the sugar syrup, just dissolve the sugar in water and cook gently over very low heat until the syrup is thick.
