Red Bean Paste

1 bowl red beans - washed and soaked overnight
1 bowl sugar

  1. Pour the red beans into a pressure cooker.  Add enough water, leaving 2 cm space above the bean surface.  Cover lid and bring to a boil.  Once it starts boiling, switch to medium low heat and boil for another 15 mins.
  2. Once it is safe to open the lid, stir sugar into the cooked beans.
  3. Mash the beans with a potato masher until desired consistency.  Let cool and store in the fridge for later use.
