How to Make Red Bean Paste

(Last Updated on December 4, 2023 by Amiee)

Red bean paste is one of my favorite fillings for Chinese pastries. Just like Fried Chop Rice Cake and Chinese Red Bean Paste Buns Which included red bean paste. I have to say that this recipe takes a long time and is more difficult. Sometimes I just buy it online to save time. But it’s better to make it yourself, and you can make more and freeze it in the refrigerator at a time.

The pressure cooker is necessary equipment to make the beans cooked through as quickly as possible. I also used breaker to get finer bean paste. When stirring the bean paste , water will splash out, so we should wear gloves and glasses. Another important point is to use a non-stick pan, otherwise the red bean paste will have a burn taste.

In order to get delicious red bean paste, all the processes are worthwhile. If you like fillings with beans, please ignore the breaker and stirring steps. Make the red beans cooked through in the pressure cooker into small balls, the same delicious fillings for buns or dessert.
