Steamed Rice Flour and Mung Bean Cakes with Coconut Sauce

 

1 and 1/2 cups (200 g) rice flour
1 and 1/3 cups (250 g) sugar
2 and 1/2 cups (625 ml) pandanus juice, or
1 teaspoon pandanus essence mixed
with 2 and 1/2 cups (625 ml) water
2/3 cup (150 g) dried yellow mung
beans, soaked in water overnight to
soften
1 tablespoon vanilla essence
15 banana leaf pieces (each 8 X 6 in/
20 X 15 cm), soaked in hot water to
soften, for wrapping
2 tablespoons oil, for greasing the
banana leaves
Toothpicks, for fastening
1 and 1/2 cups (375 ml) thick coconut milk
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons roasted sesame seeds

 

 

 


1 Combine the rice flour, 2/3 cup (130 g) of the sugar and 2 cups (500 ml) of
the pandanus juice in a saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until
the mixture thickens to a paste, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat.
2 Heat the soaked mung beans, remaining sugar and vanilla essence in a
saucepan or small pot over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens
to a similar consistency as the rice flour paste, about 5 minutes. Remove and
set aside to cool. Wet your hands and roll the mung bean paste into 15 small
balls. Set aside.
3 Lightly grease a piece of the banana leaf with a little oil. Spread 1 tablespoon
of the rice flour paste in the middle of the leaf and place a mung bean ball on
top, then cover the mung bean ball with more rice flour paste. Fold one of the
longer ends of the banana leaf over the filling, then the other longer side over


it tightly. Tuck both sides of the leaf underneath and secure the packet with
toothpicks. Repeat until all the ingredients are used up. steam the rice cakes
for about 20 minutes until cooked.
4 Heat the remaining pandanus juice, coconut milk, sugar, salt and cornstarch in
a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved
and the mixture is thick, about 10 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving bowl.
5 To serve, unwrap the rice cakes. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top and
spread the coconut sauce over them.
