Already time for another Japanese recipe, again from the book written by Yasuko fukuoka (Fresh Japanese)
While the wind is blowing outside, really stormy, I am enjoying the taste of the pie I didn’t imagine it could have a nice taste. Beans are really beans and more savoury, why would you put this in a pie?
In the midday I crashed all the nuts I had laying here, and they were many little hazelnuts and I needed 150 gram, but the time was to be in the house, with the children singing children songs and hearing the woooossh outside!Oh and I didn’t make the 150 gram so I put some sesame seed instead of the nuts, it was a success
Anyway you must try this at home, it is easy to make and I even made my own puffed rice, recipe you will find also!
Ingredients for the adukibean-pie (anko to kinomi pai)For the filling
200 gram of cooked adukibeans (I used dried ones I soaked overnight and cooked for 1 1/2 hour)
2 decilitre water
80 grams of rice syrup (she used sugar)
150 grams of roasted mixed nuts finally chopped (I used hazelnuts, almonds and sesame seed) For the crust
50 grams of oat flakes
20 grams of puffed rice*
2 1/2 tablespoon of water
3 tablespoons of rice syrup
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon of Himalaya salt
80 gram of spelt meal (she used flour)
a saucepan with some oil
a spring 20 cm diameter
a cooking pan for cooking the beans
a frying pan
How to begin…..
You must crush/shell the nuts? do this first and roast them immediately in a frying pan and set aside
First you cook the beans (after they are cooked 1 1/2 hour) in 2 decilitre water, poor in the rice syrup and stir well. Put the fire higher and throw in the salt, make it like a creamy mass. Put the fire of when this happened.
Time to make the crust get the oat flakes and puffed rice and put them in the food processor and crush them in smaller parts, not too small when it getting like crumble dough.
Get the bowl and poor in the rice syrup,2 1/2 tablespoon of water, oil,salt. Mix well. When it’s mixed well poor in the oat flakes and puffed rice and mix again well till it’s like a dough set aside for ten minutes.
Get the spring and oil the spring, the dough you put in the spring and make also some sides with the dough, so you get a ‘tray’. You do this with your fingers.Bake the crust for 15 minutes in a oven at 230 degrees Celsius.
When the crust is ready, take the crust out of the spring, put in the adukibean mixture and sprinkle with the nuts!
I can say enjoy this with some nice Japanese green tea.
Get some rice (in this recipe 20 grams) I took dessert rice, put I am sure you can do with all rice. Cook the rice in water, till the rice is soft and ready to be eaten.
But no, you won’t eat it. You will dry the rice (I had to bake a bread in the oven so I putted the rice in the oven, you can also wait a day and put the rice into the sun)
When the rice is dry again, you get a saucepan, put in some oil for frying and get a skinner where you put the rice on, when the oil is 175 degrees Celsius, you put in the rice very shortly. You see the rice is getting twice as big, don’t let them turn brown! Take out when they aren’t growing any more. Now you have puffed rice, very easy to make
