1 1/2 cup split mung bean (soak 4+hours)

1 1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

3-4 tablespoon coconut powder (optional)

Sesame sugar:

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons roasted sesame

  • Steam the mung bean rice on a cheesecloth for 15 minutes. Then add in the sugar and coconut powder and stir well.
  • Steam for another couple minutes until the rice is tender. The rice should taste and a little sweet. The rice should also be separated and not stick together.
  • Serve alone or with some sugar sesame. Remember to pound some of the sesame to give it more fragrance.
