sweet red bean
Chinese Red Bean Pastries - If you’ve ever been to Chinatown or are acquainted with Chinese cuisine, you’ll know that red bean paste is a prevalent element in Chinese desserts. Sweet bean paste is called Dou Sha in Chinese- Dou meaning bean and Sha meaning sand.. Red bean paste is actually quite delicious. These dainty lil things are considered mooncakes in Taiwan, but as a Beijing-er, real mooncakes for me are the rich, dense cakes with a thin skin.
This freshly cooked sticky rice cake is crispy on the outside with a gooey texture inside. The first bite of the slightly spongy and pleasantly fragrant rice cake has such a delightful mouthfeel. The sweet and moist red bean paste will melt in your mouth so quickly that you won’t be able to resist devouring the whole cake! A simple way to create a gluten-free snack and keep yourself fuelled up! @omnivorcookbook
Happy Chinese New Year!!! It's the Year of the Goat. A chilled smooth, silky coconut pudding with sweetened red beans is one of my favorite desserts. Served in most dim sum restaurants, it's a popular dessert. You might forget what you ate, but never... #chinese #chinesedessert #chinesepudding
