   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Mung bean flour
      3/4   c            Sugar
    2       dr           Red or green food colouring
      1/4   c            Rice flour
      3/4   c            Coconut milk
      1/2   ts           Salt
    2       tb           Yellow mung beans, optional
 
   In a large bowl, combine the mung bean flour, sugar,
   food colouring & 2 c cold water.  Stir until the flour
   is almost dissolved.  Strain through cheesecloth into
   a pot.  Over medium heat, stir the liquid until all
   remaining solids are completely dissolved & the
   mixture is thick & sticky enough to coat a spoon.
   Cool for 15 minutes. Cover a baking sheet with waxed
   paper.  Drop the mixture by the spoonful onto the
   sheet.  Do not allow the circles to touch.  Let cool
   to room temperature. In a large bowl, combine the rice
   flour, milk & salt, stirring until dissolved.  Strain
   into a pot & cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
   Drop 1 ts of this onto the cooling gelatin circles. In
   a dry skillet, toast the yellow mung beans until they
   turn light brown. Generously sprinkle onto the
   pastries & refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
   They will keep in the refrigerator for 2 or 3 days.
