【红豆沙】Adzuki Bean Paste



Adzuki bean paste is one of my favorite fillings for desserts, I often make a box of it and keep in the refrigerator, which is very convenient when I needed it.

I sometimes also make the bean paste without grinding it into paste. The method is similar to making the paste, just omit the step of blending the bean into a paste before stir frying.


1 杯/ 180 克 红豆

4 大勺/50 克 糖

2 大勺/ 20 克 猪油/食油


1 cup / 180 g Dried Adzuki bean

4 tbsp /50 g sugar

2 tbsp / 20 g lard/cooking oil

1. 红豆洗净泡水一晚上,第二天沥干水份把红豆放到高压锅里,加水没过豆子,加盖煮。高压锅出气之后继续煮8分钟。

2. 煮好的豆子自然放气后冷却至室温,把煮好的豆子放到破壁机里加一杯水搅拌顺滑。

3. 锅里热上2大勺猪油/食油,把豆糊倒入。中火加热炒制,间中不断搅拌避免粘锅。

4. 炒制至豆沙可以抱团,铲子能够直立在豆沙中间不倒下即可加糖调味。

5. 加糖拌匀,等糖都溶化之后即可熄火冷却使用。不马上使用的话,可以装到盒子里冷藏一周左右。


1. Wash and soak the adzuki beans over night.

2. Drain and submerge the bean with water in a pressure cooker, the water should be just enough to submerge the beans a little more is ok too. Cook the bean in pressure cooker for 8 minutes after the first whistle.

3. Release the pressure of the pot and let cool to room temperature. Place the cooked bean in a mixer with some water, blend it into a smooth paste.

4. Heat 2 tbsp of lard in a cooking pan, pour the bean paste into the pan, cook at medium and constantly stirring, until it is thick enough to hold a spatula standing.

5. Add sugar and mix well, let cool before using, store in airtight container up to 1 week in the refrigerator.

This paste can be used in multiple type of desserts.
