Red Bean Paste – China Hydraulic Couplings – Machine Chinad Parts
Red bean paste is graded according to its consistency. In Chinese cuisine, the most common types are:
Mashed: Azuki beans are boiled with sugar and mashed. The paste is smooth with bits of broken beans and bean husk. Depending on the intended texture, the beans can be vigorously or lightly mashed. Some unmashed beans can also be added back into the bean paste for additional texture. This is the most common and popular type of red bean paste eaten in Chinese confections. Can also be eaten on its own or in sweet soups.
Smooth: Azuki beans are boiled without sugar, mashed, and diluted into a slurry. The slurry is then strained through a sieve to remove the husk, filtered, and squeezed dry using cheesecloth. Although, the dry paste can be directly sweetened and used, Oil, either vegetable oil or lard, is usually used to cook the dry paste and improve its texture and mouth feel. Smooth bean paste is mainly found as fillings for Chinese pastries.
In Japanese cuisine, the most common types are:
Tsubuan (), whole red beans boiled with sugar but otherwise untreated
Tsubushian (), where the beans are mashed after boiling
Koshian (), which has been passed through a sieve to remove bean skins; the most common type
Sarashian (), which has been dried and reconstituted with water
In Japanese, a number of names are used to refer to red bean paste; these include an (?), anko (?), and ogura (?). Strictly speaking, the term an can refer to almost any sweet, edible, mashed paste, although without qualifiers red beans are assumed. Common alternatives include shiroan (), made from white kidney beans, and kurian (), made from chestnuts.
Similarly, the Chinese term dou sha (), applies to red bean paste when used without qualifiers, although hongdou sha () explicitly means “red bean paste.”
