MUNG BEAN JELLY

Photobucket

My kids really love to have cold dessert especially during hot spell now. You can really felt the intense heat outdoors. Lucky for those work in an air conditioned environment.

This jelly is pretty simple to prepare. What needs to prepare is the green bean aka mung bean before hand. Just boil the cleaned mung bean with water and salt until it is really soft and almost dry. Either mash or blend the bean but I just mash them with a spoon.

Added evaporated milk but you can also use coconut milk for real tasty dessert. It tasted divine on hot summer days!

MUNG BEAN JELLY

1 pack x 12g agar powder colorless
250g sugar
3 cups water
2 cups milk/coconut milk
150g dry mung bean boiled and mashed

METHOD

* Dissolve agar powder in water. Add sugar and bring to boil using medium heat, stirring occasionally.

* Add mashed mung bean and milk, bring to boil again.

* Pour into rinsed mould and let cool. Once it comes to room temperature, refrigerate.

* Serve cold.

I've never had anything like this before, but a cold dessert does sound good! I'm ready for fall, but the heat in Phoenix is not cooperating.

I've never tried this but quite honestly it sounds really good. I love the you are using agar instead of gelatin, oh and coconut milk well that's just perfect.
