Lek Tau Suan

To save time, I soak the beans and steamed it yesterday night and then store in fridge. It takes less than 10mins to get it done and ready to eat in the next morning :D Every mouthful is full of beans unlike those selling outside whereby only get to eat the gluey starch instead of the beans :P

  • 300 gm skinned green beans
  • 10 pandan leaves, knotted (i used thin blades)
  • 125 gm brown sugar (as usual i have reduced the sugar content!)
  • 2000 ml water
  • 80gm potato flour
  • 125ml water

  1. Rinse green skins until water is cleared. Soak for 1 hour. Place some cut pandan leaves on a plate, place soaked green beans over the pandan leaves. Steam over boiling water for 30mins until soft. Set aside.
  2. Boil the pandan leaves and the sugar with 2000 ml water. Blend the sweet potato flour with 125 ml water.
  3. When the sugar water boils, lower the heat and stir in the flour mixture gradually, stirring at the same time.
  4. Add in the soft green beans and stirring thoroughly. Serve hot with 'you tiao'.
  5. Note: Keep warm in a slow cook pot or rice cooker under warm setting, as it will turn watery if leave in room temp!
