红豆和绿豆- 170克

糖- 6至8汤匙

 Steps / 步骤:-
unnamed (3)
1) Rinse the dried beans then keep some water inside the pot .
将豆子冲洗干净后,保留少量的水。

2) Heat up the pot with medium fire , fry the beans for 5 minutes until the smoke heated up and turn off the fire. Then cover tightly with a piece of aluminium foil (In the meantime I also covered with lid ) and simmer for 5 minutes. Repeat once again these 2 steps.
打开中火,先把豆子炒5分钟至到大量的蒸气冒上来后就熄火。接着利用锡箔纸铺盖紧密焖5分钟(同时我也盖上锅盖)。再一次重复此步骤。

3) Now, pour in the water  and cook with high fire for 20 minutes. Then turn the heat to medium and cook until beans are softened. It’s take about 40 minutes to cook.
现在倒入水,以高火煮20分钟后,转中火煮至豆子软。煮的过程需要大约40分钟左右。

4) After boiling, a portion of water would have evaporated. You need to add water until the original level .
当糖水滚开后,会有小部分的水量被蒸发。这时你必须添加适量的水,至原来的水位。
