The weather is cooling off... the leaves are changing into shades of yellow and soon will be brown... grey dark clouds looking heavy and about to burst... and less sun shiny days...

Its a sure sign of Autumn... and I am HAPPY...big grin



Autumn in Perth ~ is very mild... compared to Eastern States or countries in the Northern hemisphere... I could still indulge in ice-cream... without shivers running through my spinetongue
I chose to make red beans ice-cream....one of many favourite flavours among Malaysians... Other flavours would be Sweetcorn, Durian and Jackfruit.
My all time favourite would be all of the above except for durian... I wasn't very keen on Durian or any durian flavours food eversince I was knocked out by XO durian... I had migraine for 2 days ... sad
Red beans with coconut milk... combine the 2 together...  ... beautiful flavours..love struck and I can assure you that one popsicle will not be enough


Have a Wonderful Easter Break

Recipe
2 cups of cooked red beans
1/2 cup of sugar (more if you have sweet tooth)
1 cup water
1 knotted pandan leaf
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 cup evaporated milk
a pinch of salt
  1. Mix sugar and water and pandan leaf in a small pot and bring to boil for 5 minutes or until sugar dissolve. Set aside. Discard the knotted pandan.
  2. Mix cooked red beans(set aside about 1/4 cup), coconut milk and blend until it has become semi puree.
  3. Add evaporated milk and syrup.
  4. Add a pinch of salt.
  5. Stir well.
  6. Using an ice-cream maker and following manufacturer's instruction, churn the mixture.
  7. If you are using popsicle mould... fill about 2 teaspoon of cooked red beans before adding the ice mixture into the moulds
  8. Freeze 2 hours before serving
Note : Do not leave the mixer unattended.. this mix contain high percentage of water, it will turn icy very fast... just watch the churning blade, once you detect that it is struggling to churn, quickly turn off your ice-cream maker and pour the mix into a container.... to avoid disaster in the kitchen

  7. I really have to try this recipe - as you know, red bean is my favourite. Did you use shot glasses as the molds? Very good idea!

  11. Yummy... I love your ice cream recipes, Lisa! Now you're making me wish I owned (and have space in my kitchen cabinet) an ice-cream machine =D But, yes. There really is nothing better than good old Red Bean/Durian/Sweet Corn ais krim potong by the roadside on a hot day in Malaysia. Happy days. I think I want to pass this recipe on to my friend who owns an ice cream machine so she can make this for me haha =D
