Saturday, February 23, 2008

My husband likes to have it for breakfast since it is quite filling his stomach up until lunch time. For pregnant women, it is also good source of carbohydrate and protein and it is believed that by eating this beans during pregnancy will make the baby grown thick hair.

- 350 gr of green mung beans, wash and soak in water overnightly, discard soaking water before cooking
- 3 pandan leaves
- 4cm of ginger, crack it with pestle
- 2 blocks of palm sugar, grate it
- 1/2 can of coconut milk (optional)
- salt
- sugar
- water

In a pot, boil the beans with enough water for 15minutes. Add pandan leaves and ginger, continue to cook until beans cracked. Add palm sugar, pinch of salt and sugar to taste. At last if you like, you may add coconut milk and continue to cook until boiling and stir it occasionally.
It can be served warm (for breakfast) or cold by adding some ice (for dessert).
