- 1 1/2 All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup Crisco® Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening Baking Sticks
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil or canola oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 16 oz Mung Beans Pre cooked and softened
- 1/2 cup condensed milk
- 1 cup sugar
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.
