Ingredients

  • 160 grams Cooked White Cannelloni BeansĀ 
  • 12 grams All-purpose flour
  • 7 grams Cornstarch/cornflour
  • 7 grams Rice flour
  • 1 tsp Light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp Cooking oil
  • 1/8 tsp Flavoring/extract

Instructions

Prepare beans

  • Soak bean in water overnight - 6 to 8 hours.
  • Boil with 4 times the amount of water until tender - about an hour.
  • Drain liquid from beans.
  • Remove skin from each bean as much as possible.
  • Place in a blender with a few tablespoons of the liquid from the boiling water.
  • Pour into a mesh lined with cheesecloth.
  • Firmly squeeze out all the liquid until you have a thick dry crumbly bean mass.

Prepare bean paste mixture

  • In a bowl combine all ingredients.
  • Starting from the bean mass add the flour, cornstarch, rice flour, light corn syrup, and oil.
  • Combine well then add flavoring or extract.

Steam bean paste mixture

  • Wrap the bean paste in foil to prevent moisture from getting in.
  • Place the foil in a steamer (see video).
  • Cover and let steam for 10 minutes.
  • Let cool in the foil for 10 minutes more.
  • Then open foil and break into small pieces to cool completely.

Store

  • Knead the cool bean paste into a ball again.
  • Place in a cling wrap to prevent drying out.
  • Bean paste will stay in the fridge for up to a week.
  • Can be frozen for a month.
