Fragrant Taiwanese style Red- Bean paste

Fragrant Taiwanese style Red-Bean paste


  1. 500g adzuki red beans
  2. 500ml water
  3. Red sugar (adjust to your taste)


  1. Wash adzuki beans while picking out ‘rotted’ ones
  2. leave to soak overnight
  3. change water and bring to boil
  4. repeat step 3
  5. reduce the flame
  6. smash beans with a large ladle (its okay to still see whole beans)
  7. add sugar to taste and water if the paste seems too dry
  8. stir thoroughly with ladle

its the best red bean paste ever! the red sugar gives it a coffee- like aroma. My mum recommended adding some instant coffee but note that more sugar has to be added to offset the bitterness 😀
