Red Beans Soup (Sweet)

  • 2 cup red beans
  • 15 cups water
  • 1-3 strip dried tangerine peel
  • 5-8 pandan leaves
  • sugar, as desired
  • tick coconut milk (Optional)


1. Prefer soak the red beans in water overnight to soften. (Drain).
NOTE: If not it will take much longer time to cook (3-4 hours)
2. Place the red beans and tangerine peel in a pot bring the 10 cups of water with the to a boil. (The soup can be thicker or thinner as desired. I usually start with 10 cups of water, and then add more boiling water at the end with the pandan leave on low fire)
4. Turn the heat down, add the red beans and simmer, partially covered, for 1-2 hours, until the beans are softened to the point where they are just beginning to break apart.
5. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Taste and add more sugar if desired. Thin the soup by adding boiling water if desired.
6.Serve the red bean soup hot or cold with coconut milk.
