This Summer has been the busiest and happiest as i have the pleasure of entertaining friends from Malaysia, and i have been neglecting my blog and so many other things. I did not even realised that the the holy month of Ramadan has already started a few days ago until i received an email from Karr Wei, who posted my Kuih Bakar on the StarMetro, a sunday section of The Star. The article can be found as Simple Delightful Kuih
To all Malaysians and everyone who is observing this holy month, i wish you all the best and Selamat Buka Puasa
1 cup mung beans/green beans - washed and soaked for 1 - 2 hrs
1/2 cup dried kelp (海带)
Granulated sugar/Rock sugar to taste
Put soaked beans and kelp in a pressure cooker and top with enough water to reach to 1/2 of the 6 quarts pr essure cooker. Close the lid and cook on high - 15 lbs pressure for 30 minutes - time starts when the 15 lbs of pressure has been reached, that is the pot will be hissing like crazy. Reduce heat to maintain 15lbs pressure.
Release pressure before opening the lid.
Check the beans for desired softness (cook further if it is not ready).
Add enough of sugar according to taste and bring the soup back to the boil and cook until sugar has dissolved.
