“Sweetened mung beans are deliciously wrapped in glutinous rice flour and deep fried. Good for a snack.” - by lola
Original recipe yields 10 servings
- Combine the mung beans and 1 cup water in a pot and bring to a boil; boil over medium heat until the beans are very tender, about 30 minutes. Mash the beans thoroughly. Stir 1/2 cup sugar into the mashed beans; set aside.
- Mix the glutinous rice flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, salt, and 1/4 cup water together in a large bowl; knead together just enough to form a ball. Divide the ball into small pieces and roll into balls. Flatten each ball of dough, and spoon 1 tablespoon of the mashed bean mixture into the middle of the dough. Wrap the dough around the bean mixture and pinch the edges together to seal. Repeat until all the dough and paste is used.
- Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Fry the balls in batches in the hot oil until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes per batch. Serve hot.

"Thanks for the recipe Lola. I found that more water was needed for the rice flour - close to one cup. I also rolled the buchi in untoasted sesame seeds prior to frying (that is how I remember it fro..." See morem the chinese restaurants in Manila). I also used red mung (monggo) beans cooked in syrup and mushed them up (I wanted to find it in paste, but only found the whole beans - it is also a halo-halo ingredient!) This is a good reference if I can't find the red mung beans in syrup, the dried, green mung beans are more readilly available. Thanks again! "
