Hakka mung bean mooncake 綠豆月餅

The Chinese Hakka have another special mooncake called lek tao koh or mungbean mooncake. It is quite easy to make.

-200g mung beans (dried, peel and split)
-150-200g sugar
-1 tbs koh fun ( commercialized cooked glutinous rice flour)
-2-3 tbs oil
-1/2 tsp vanilla, pomelo or mali flower water

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
