Brown Bean and Yam Dessert

The original recipe uses red beans but I prefer to substitute it with brown beans.  I just love brown beans more than red beans.  Anyway, the brown beans will have a very nice dark orangy colour after its cooked.


Very simple dessert and with steamed yam, its more fragrant.

Ingredients
original recipe from Yum Yum magazine No.48 
with some modifications
[serves  5-6]
100 gm brown beans - washed 
1000 ml hot water
80 gm rock sugar to taste
150 -200 gm yam - peeled, cubed and steamed until soft [about 20 minutes]


  1. Put brown beans and hot water into a slow cooker pot.  Cook on high heat until beans are soft.
  2. Add in rock sugar to taste.
  3. Add in steamed yam to cook for several minutes.
  4. Off heat and serve dessert hot or warm.

Hi Kimmy, I like dessert. BY the way what is brown bean n Chinese? Is it 赤小豆?

Kimmy said...

Hi Veronica, there are several Chinese names that varies according to dialect. Some call it Chek Tau or Chao Tau. When soft they still have a bite. Nice beans.

Hi Kimmy,
I'm not sure whether have I eaten brown beans before!
This is perfect dessert to eat anytime of the day!

Hi Joyce, I prefer this kind of beans than the actual red beans cos' the soup has nice clear colour even when you reheat it many times.

Hi Cathleen, yes it is, cholesterol free and for sliming, omit the sugar, hehehe! A bowl is about 170 calories..

Kimmy, I wonder if I have seen brown beans before. Maybe I did not notice. I love yam whether in desserts or savory dishes.

Hi Phong Hong, perhaps you can get to them at the Chinese grocery stalls at the wet market.
