Red Beans 'Won Zai Go' vs 'Put Zai Go'

This is also called as Kuih Kosui. But over here, the elderly called it 'won zhai go' which means small bowl goodie/kuih. In Hong Kong, they called it 'put zhai go' also means the same thing. It's such a delicious dessert and it's very easy to make. So, just have fun with it!
Ingredients (A) :
230gm all purpose flour
200gm tapioca flour
1/4 tspn alkaline water
salt to taste
700ml water
Ingredients (B) :
300gm brown sugar
pandan leaves
300ml water
Ingredients (C) :
100gm grated coconut
1/4 tspn salt
(steam for 20mins & leave aside)
Ingredients (D) :
1 can cooked azuki red beans
(wash, drain and divide bean into bowls)

Method :
- mix ingredients (A) well, strain into a big bowl and set aside.
- cook ingredients (B) untill sugar dissolves & strain mixture
- and pour into ingredients A quickly.
- stir well and strain again.
- pour batter into ceramic bowl (I'm using rice bowl).
- steam for 30mins over high heat or untill set.
- leave to cool before lifting.
I've cut down the quantity of sugar and this kuih is more delightful than sweet when having it together with steamed grated coconut.
Absolutely yum....

Anncoo : You can easily find this cooked azuki red beans at the supermarket(under can food dept). It's about RM2.30 per can.

Angie's Recipes said...

Kristy, your 红豆糕 look very delicious!

Barbara said...

I so enjoy reading your posts, Kristy. So often food I am unfamiliar with and love to learn about!

Mary said...

I have never seen this before, Kristy.I love to learn about new (to me) foods.

Lyndsey said...

Oh good I wanted another recipe I could use my red beans in. I have everything except the pandan leaves. Do you know what I could use instead?
This looks fun to try! Thanks!

saju said...

wow..this looks so nice...i would love to try this but have no idea wer to get some of the ingredients

MaryMoh said...

Looks very delicious. It's like red bean embedded in white nian gao ... any such thing?...haha. I haven't tried this. Cooking red bean is quite a pain. I won't go for canned ones so I'll have to wait for less busy days to try this. Or, maybe you cook for me...you will, right?

Heavenly Housewife said...

I have never had anything like this, I'd love to try it.

Drick said...

I think I just might like this small bowl goodie...thanks for sharing this...so interesting learning from you...

Diana Bauman said...

This looks so yummy Kristy! I have finally visited my local Asian Grocery store and was so excited to find so many ingredients that you use! I'll be trying many of your dishes in the new year!!

My Little Space said...

Christine : Thank you very much for sharing the ori recipe! I think yours is much easier and what I love the most is the omit of alkaline water.

Shirley : Thanks a lot, dear!

FoodParadise : You're most welcome!

Angie : Thanks! I'm sure you miss this kind of Asian desserts very much.

Barbara : Thanks! Hope you'll enjoy this.

Mary : Have fun!

Lyndsey : Yes, you can omit the pandan leaves or you can use pandan extract instead. Or just go without it... coz the brown sugar already very fragrant.

Saju : You can always find these at any nearby Asian food stores!

MaryMoh : I used the canned one. The quantity just nicely divided.

HH : I wish I can send this over but I can't. So sorry!

Drick : You're welcome! We're learning from each other. Aren't we?

Diana : Great! You finally found the shop. I'm sure you're getting excited. You should try the steamed bun first, to share it with your kids. I'm sure they'll love it so much.

Have fun and enjoy the festive season. And don't forget to take good care of your family & the .....chickens! haha...

Cheers, Kristy

Oh, you've just brought back my childhood memory.
I used to buy a piece after school when I was still a kid back in HK. I'd never forget the 2 classic colors - white and brown!
Your homemade ones look too good!

Yum Yum Yum!!!

tracieMoo said...

I've only had kuih kosui before, and not put zhai go, neither the ones with red bean filling. It looks great together with the shredded coconut. Looks like you had lots of fun making this. I would love to try it too :)

My Little Space said...

Lululu : Thanks a lot! I'm been craving for this lately. Don't know why! I'm glad I placed in the azuki beans and it did make a big difference in that flavour.

3hungrytummy : Thank you!

Tracie : When I was little, I can easily buy this(plain one) from any street food stores. But nowadays, can hardly find this anymore. Can only see those selling at the Malay store which is a little different compare to the old days one!

Have a nice day.

Cheers, Kristy

Cheah said...

Yummy, I like anything with red bean paste. Nice kuih!

Wow...so many ingredients I have never used before. Thank you for inspiring me!

Katy ~ said...

I haven't had red beans for decades, since my mom made then when I was a wee girl. This looks soooo good. I know I would love this.

Selba said...

My mom would love this kind of "kuih" :)

Peanutts said...

Hello, thanks for stopping by cant wait to check yours, always on the look out for malaysian recipes, whats alkaline water?

cheapappetite said...

I've seen these before, but I've never tried them. I'm glad that you reduced the amount of sugar because I don't like overly sweet dessert. I love the grated coconut on top.

Blessed Homemaker said...

The first time I ate this was in HK several years ago and I love it to bits! Don't remember seeing it in Sgp though.
