Mung Bean With Honey And Papaya

One of the girls in our cooking group said,"Let's do dessert this weekend!". Several of us responded with an enthusiastic yes!

A packet of mung beans was pulled out of the kitchen cabinet. I knew what I wanted to do, a sweet soup dessert with sago pearls ... like always. "How predictable!" the thought crept in and it dug deep.

I was egged by it into doing something I never tried before - and that is how this easy treat really came about, a need to break out of the norm.

Mung Bean Honey Dessert with Papaya

This is so simple to make that you don't need exact measurements. Boil however much you want, add more fruits if you prefer, flavour with as much honey as you like.

- Mung beans (boil in water until soft. keep the water aside.)
- Honey
- Papaya or fruit of choice


Boil mung beans in water until soft. Keep the water aside.

Pour softened mung beans into the blender with some of the mung bean water. Blend. Check if this is the consistency you want. If it is too thick, add more water and continue blending. Do this until you have a nice smooth puree - not too watery, not too thick. 

Use a melon baller to scoop out balls from the papaya. 

To serve, pour the mung bean puree into a bowl. Place the papaya ball on top and drizzle with honey. Best eaten warm.
