Ingredients
  • 6 oz red beans / adzuki beans (170g)
  • Sufficient water to soak and cover red beans in saucepan
  • 6 tbsp sugar (85g)
  • ΒΌ tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Wash and drain red beans 2 to 3 times or until water runs clear. Top up with fresh water to cover beans. Soak for 4 to 8 hours.
  2. Drain red beans. Transfer to a medium size saucepan. Top up with enough fresh water to cover red beans.
  3. Place saucepan on the stove and bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. Top up with a little water when necessary.
  4. After 45 minutes to an hour, most of the water would have evaporated and beans should be very soft. Add sugar and salt. Stir to melt the sugar. Turn off stove and allow red bean mash to cool.
  5. Red bean mash will thicken slightly when cooled. Store in refrigerator for up to one week.
