Where I came from, Indonesia, we eat mung bean as a dessert drinks, serve warm or cold with ice. I have been craving for this and since tonight the weather is cooler, I think it is perfect for this. Instant pot definitely make it easy. I did 15 minutes tonight, but I think 12 minutes should be ok, plus npr just until the pressure is down. I remember my neighbour when i was in grade school, made this mung bean in the old scary pressure cooker. She openned the lid before the pressure all down, boom…the ceiling were covered by the beans. Thank God she was not injured.
2 cups mung bean
8 to 10 cups water
A pinch of salt
3 kaffir lime leaves
1 pandan leaves
1inch ginger, peeled and smashed
10 tablespoons sugar
1 can coconut milk
Add all but sugar and coconut milk. Closed the lid and vent. Manual 15 minutes, npr just until the pressure button down.
Stir in the sugar, if you like it sweeter, add more. Turn off the pot, pour in coconut milk and stir.
Serve warm or add ice.
