Sweet Brown Bean Buns [Gelatinized Dough]

I made some sweet bean paste using brown beans instead of red beans.
Preparation is not that difficult. With this portion of ingredients, I can get about 350gm of the sweet bean paste which is enough for the portion gelatinized dough. Please refer to this post for the dough recipe Pandan Coconut Buns [Gelatinized Dough Method.
Brown Beans 
Ingredients for Brown Bean Paste
100 gm brown beans
2 pandan leaves - knotted
100 gm dark brown sugar
400 ml water or enough to cook beans until tender
1 tbsp butter
  1. Boil brown beans with pandan leaves in a pot with water until very tender.  Cool and discard pandan leaves .  Blend the soft beans in a processor until fine.  Add a little water if necessary.  Blended them in several batches for easier handling.
  2. Place blended ingredients in a heavy based pan.  
  3. Stir continuously to reduce the  water.  Cooked until  paste still slightly dry but moist.  Add in sugar.  Continue to stir and paste is almost dry again.
  4. Add in butter.  Continue to stir fry until paste is  smooth and shiny but not dry.
  5. Dish out and cool before storing.  
  6. Use paste as filling for buns.
Filling enough to makes about 22-24 buns.

Verdict - these buns are soft and moist.  With the homemade sweet brown bean paste, it is not that sweet.
