- 630 g boiled red (azuki) beans
- 200 g sugar
- 100 ml water
Place the boiled red (azuki) beans, sugar and water in a pan.
Bring to a boil. Be careful to stir from time to time to prevent the beans from sticking to the pan. Boil about 5 minutes until the beans become paste. Remove from heat.
Remove bean paste from pan and cool in a shallow container.
This recipe is almost always used in manjyū, yōkan and other Japanese sweets and is sometimes spread on toast.
