百合绿豆糖水 Green Mung Bean Soup Dessert


Yesterday was a day for my hubby to relax after being away on business trips for a week. So during days when he is home, I would be busy cooking and preparing food to beef him up. Since he loves 'Tong Shui' hence I settled for this nourishing mung bean soup for his afternoon tea break.
昨天正是我们小俩口在家休息的日子,我丈夫整个星期都出国出差而星期天便是他能够真正修养的时候。平时在周日时,我将会繁忙于准备多类的食物来给他补充体力。正好他热爱喝糖水,那么我就觉定弄这道富有滋润功效的绿豆糖水给他当午茶享用。


According to traditional medicine's studies recorded that green mung bean skin is a powerful heat expelling and diuretic agent which help to purge out pathogenic heat by purging through urination thus relieving us of many heat related ailments. 
依据中医科的研究所述,绿豆皮富有解‘热’及利尿功能,通过排尿冲洗我们体内所累积的燥热及相关的疾病。

百合绿豆糖水
Green Mung Bean Soup Dessert

Ingredients

200g Green Beans 绿豆
2000ml Water 清水
170g Rock Sugar 冰糖
10g Lily Bulbs 百合
2 pcs Tangerine Peel 橙皮
2 Knots Pandan Leaves 香兰叶
100g Sago / Tapioca Balls 小西米
100ml Thick Coconut Milk 浓椰汁 (Optional 自选)

Directions 做法

Soak green beans overnight. Rinse and discard water.
将绿豆浸泡隔夜后,将水倒掉再洗净。

In a soup pot, combine together water, green beans, rock sugar, tangerine peel, lily bulbs and pandan leaves. Cook on medium heat until the water start boil then reduce the heat to medium low. 
准备汤锅,把水,绿豆,冰糖,橙皮,百合 喝香兰叶加入。以中小火煮至水滚后再把火调低。

If you are using similar cookware like Roichen premium ceramic cookware then you can cook the mung beans in the pot with the lid close. Otherwise, you might need to keep further cook with the lid partially open when the beans start to split as the boiling water will produce foam which will spill over the pot. Allow the mung bean soup to simmer for 1 hour.
你若是采用类似Roichen premium cookware 的炊具的话,你就不虚把锅盖打开继续滚煮。否则,你就得将锅盖开少许以免煮熟的绿豆会气泡导致糖水会喷出来。以中小火煮1个小时。


While waiting for the mung bean to cook, bloom the sago pearls in a bowl with sufficient cold water to cover the sago.
正当绿豆在滚熟时,把西米用足够的冷水浸泡。

Heat up another pot with boiling water and stir in the sago pearls and continue stirring the sago until the pearls turn translucent. Remove from heat and drain.
另准备一个锅烧开水,将西米倒入开水后不停搅拌以免西米黏锅底,直到西米表面变透明即可离火。过濾。


Immediately rinse the sago pearls under cold water to prevent the pearls from sticking. Transfer sago pearls to the simmering green mung bean soup and stir until incorporated.
立刻把西米直接用自来水冲凉,目的是让煮熟的小西米不混沌。再把小西米倒入正煮滚着的绿豆糖水里,搅匀。

Optionally you may stir in thick coconut milk during the last few minutes of the boiling.
在将要熄火的时候可加入浓椰汁,拌匀即可。
