Notes on the Instant Pot Mashed Mung Bean Recipe (Dau Xanh Danh) Recipe, Tips and Tricks

Use peeled and split mung bean for this recipe. This mung bean has the green shell removed and is cut in half. Do not use the whole unpeeled mung bean in this recipe. The green shell is too fibrous and won’t mash properly.  The brand I like is SunLee, a product of Thailand.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mung bean peeled and split

  • 1 1/3 cups water

Instructions

  1. Transfer the mung bean into a rice washing bowl or other small bowl. Wash the mung bean by swirling in cold water for 30 seconds. Pour out the wash water and repeat the process 2 more times or until the water is mostly clear.

  3. Cover with the pressure cooking lid. Set the steam release handle to "Sealing". Press the "Rice" button. (This preset sets the cooking mode to "High Pressure" for 12 minutes.) When the cook time is completed, allow for a 10 minute natural pressure release. Release any remaining pressure.

  4. Using a rice paddle spoon, mash the mung bean until smooth and the individual beans are no longer visible. (This takes approximately 2-3 minutes.) If the mung bean is a bit dry, add boiling water, 1 Tbsp at a time until the desired consistency is achieved.

Some Yummy Dishes to Make with Mashed Mung Bean

Mashed Mung Bean is often used as a filling in savory and sweet dumplings, cakes and other desserts. I typically cook rehydrated mung bean in a rice cooker, in a steamer or on the stove-top. Pressure cooking in the Instant Pot is much faster and the results are just as good. Below are some recipes I’ve shared using Mashed Mung Bean. Enjoy!

    Hi Trang
    If I double the amount of mung bean, is the amount of liquid also double?

      Hi Amy,
      Yes, double the liquid if doubling the amount of mung bean. Good Luck!

    Hi Trang, thanks for the awesome recipe! I wanna ask if i doubled the mung bean from 1 cuo to 2 cups, should I still cook it in the IP for 12 mins or should I double the time? Thank you!

      Hi Tran,
      For double the recipe, it’s the same cooking time. Good Luck and please stop back to share your results.

    Love this! I cook with mung bean a lot and always forget to soak them the night before. Your no-soak IP recipe rocks! Thanks!
