Steamed rice cakes with red bean | 15 comments:



I adapted a recipe from Christine's Recipes to make these cute little steamed 'woon chai ko' with red bean.  However, I tweaked the recipe a bit by using palm sugar instead of brown sugar.










Spruce this up a bit with more syrupy kidney beans.  The touch up enhanced the look as well as the taste  ....
