The practice of mung bean crust:

Soak the mung beans for two hours, rinse them well, put them in an electric pressure cooker and cook for 30 minutes. Put those cooked mung beans into the juicer to make a juice, filter the bean dregs with a colander and get the juice. Add a certain amount of mung bean juice to the flour, put it in a bag and let it rise for 20 minutes, knead it into a green dough, divide it into 25 grams and squash the dough.

Red bean paste practise:

Soak the red beans for two hours, rinse them off, put them in an electric pressure cooker and cook for 30 minutes. Do not filter out the soup of cooked red beans. It will become thicker after it has cooled down. Put them together in the blender and make a paste.

Prepare a non-stick pan, pour the red bean paste, turn on a low heat and start to fry.

Add a certain amount of syrup to the red bean paste. Stir-fry for about 10 minutes after adding the syrup, and the water evaporates a lot. Stir while frying, the pattern lines are obvious. Add the peanut oil three times, and mix the peanut oil in advance. Each time you put the oil, wait until all the oil is absorbed, and then put it down. Once the oil is used, the frying is continued, and the frying is continued for about 12 minutes until the end that the frying is basically solid. The frying needs to be squeezed and it is very solidified.
