Ingredients

DOUGH 1

  • 1 1/2 All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup Crisco┬« Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening Baking Sticks

DOUGH 2

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil or canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

FILLING

  • 16 oz Mung Beans Pre cooked and softened
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1 cup sugar

Egg Wash:

  • 1 egg beaten

Instructions

FILLING PREPARATION

  • Cook the Mung Beans with 10 cups of water and let boil and soft enough to mash. In my case, I slow cooked the 16 oz Mung Beans with 10 cups water overnight and drain the water.
  • After removing the excess water I added the condensed milk and sugar and I transferred the cooked Mung Beans in a medium sized pot and cook in a medium heat until dry. Keep on watching this phase because the cook Mung Beans tend to stick at the bottom, so keep on stirring.
  • When the excess water has completely evaporated, let cool and refrigerate for easy handling.
  • THERE WILL BE EXTRA FILLING LEFT, JUST PUT IT IN A SEALED CONTAINER AND SEAL FOR NEXT USE.
