A favorite treat from Northern Vietnam. These mini cakes are best enjoyed with a hot cup of tea. Vietnamese Petit Fours?
-200g mung beans (dried, peel and split)
-1 tbs koh fun
-2-3 tbs oil
-1/2 tsp vanilla, pomelo or mali flower water
What to Do:
Rinse and soak beans for at least a few hours, until they're nice and plump. Drain the beans and steam until tender. Mash the beans and mix with sugar. Simmer the beans over medium heat while stirring constantly for about 20 mins. Meanwhile mix together koh fun and oil. After about 20 mins, add the flour mixture and mix well. Continue to cook for another 10 mins. Add vanilla, and pomelo flower water. Cool until beans are cool enough to handle and press into a mold (if you don't own a traditional mould...use your imagination....*hint hint* chocolate molds *hint hint*.
