Ingredients
  • ½ cup coconut cream (120ml)
  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ¼ cup black glutinous rice / black sweet rice, washed and drained (40g)
  • ½ cup sugar (110g) or to taste
  • 2 - 3 slices dried tangerine peel
  • 6 cups water (1.5 liters)
Instructions
  1. Bring coconut cream to a gentle boil. Add salt. Turn off stove. Remove and let it cool.

  2. Put red beans, black glutinous rice, tangerine peel, and water in a medium size pot. Bring to boil. Add sugar.

  3. Reduce heat and simmer for about 2 hours or until beans are very soft. Stir every now and then to prevent beans from sticking to the base of pot. Add more water if necessary.
