Split Bean Soup with You Tiao

My mum thought me how to make this delicious dessert- "Dao Suan" Split Bean Soup. It was really easy to make.

It is definitely much cheaper to make this at home than to eat it outside and you can adjust the sweetness according to your liking.

Most importantly, you can as many servings as you like.

Ingredients(Makes 4 rice bowls)
-150g split green (mung) bean
-2 pandan leaves, washed and tied to a knot
-50g rock sugar
-500ml water
-1 “you tiao” (fried dough fritters/”you char kway“), sliced

Thickener:40g sweet potato flour, mixed with 125ml (1/2 cup) water

1. Soak the beans in water overnight, drained and rinse again with water. Drain again.
2. In a pot, add water, pandan leaves and sugar. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, and add in the beans.
3. Before using the thickener, stir the solution again to make sure it is even. Stir in the thickener slowly until mixture thickens (you do not need to add all … stop adding once it becomes the thickness that you like. I used only 3/4 of the amount).
4. Ladle into your bowl and top with "you tiao". Serve hot or warm.

Enjoy eating them!
