Adzuki Bean Porridge | Bubur Kacang Merah

Happy Friday & Spring!

Well, it’s not officially spring at the moment, but I can just feel it in the air.

Either that, or I just cannot wait for spring produce, colorful dresses and beautiful weather.

Throw in ice cream and I’d happily do a dance. Even if its for this dessert that I grew up with — adzuki porridge, or bubur kacang for fellow Malaysian’s out there :)

I am a bean girl, no doubt. But I just can’t fathom the idea of eating red & black beans, savory. I am fine eating other beans/legumes in the “savory” department, but just not these two.

It’s not my fault that I grew up exposed to eating black and red beans for dessert. So whenever the Husband and I eat at our favorite Mexican restaurant – Chipotle, his order’s are usually topped with black beans. Mine on the other hand, is usually piled high with guacamole. No beans.

I get stinky eyes from the Husband whenever I refuse.

I’ll let you in on a secret & important ingredient in today’s recipe — pandan leaves!

Pandan (also known as “screwpine“) leaves are widely used in Southeast Asian cuisine. It lends great aroma and flavor to sweet & savory dishes.

There’s a huge possibility of not finding it in your local grocery stores, but try scouring the ethic food chains – oriental / thai supermarkets. If fresh is not available, look for it in the frozen section.

I found it in the frozen section and I did a happy dance!!! For reals, ask the Husband if you don’t believe 😀

  • 1 cup Adzuki beans
  • 2 cups water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1.5 cup thick coconut milk
  • 3 – 4 small pandan leaves
  • 4 – 5 tbsp agave nectar/sugar


  1. Rinse and soak adzuki beans for 2 hours, in some water.
  2. Rinse beans before adding it in a pressure cooker, with 2 cups of water + salt. Heat it over medium high to boil for 20 minutes.
  3. Add thick coconut milk and pandan leaves. Pressure cook for another 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat & discard pandan leaves. To sweeten, add agave nectar/sugar.
  5. Serve it hot or cold. Makes a great topping over scoops of vanilla ice cream.


Off to enjoy what is left of Friday, and hopefully some bubur kacang merah before the Husband assumes the whole pot is for him 😉

Have a great weekend, friends <3

A delicious looking pudding! I’ve eaten something very similar and it was a Thai dessert… For me, beans are synonymous of savory food, but I don’t mind going out of my comfort zone as I’m quite adventurous. 😉




2 Kiran March 7, 2012 at 4:00 PM

Rosa — thanks dear. Yes, sweet beans are a Thai and Southeast Asia’s famous dessert :)


3 Margarita March 2, 2012 at 5:43 PM

Pandan leaves have the most amazing smell… They have a magic touch and makes everything smell good, look good, and taste good. Yum!

Nice one Kiran – now I have to try and get my hands on two things! I don’t think I’ve seen Adzuki beans before, and pandan leaves as well… they sound like a wonderful thing to cook with. I know almost nothing about Malaysian cuisine – it’s fun to discover new things – thanks for sharing this :)

Charles — I hope you get to try this recipe :)


7 Yudith @ Blissfully Delicious March 2, 2012 at 10:44 PM

Oh. My. Goodness. This IS simply divine. I love the smell of pandan leaves, it reminds me of my grandmother’s kitchen! My family and I like to make this during the holidays, but we normally make the green version. I bet the red is delicious as well.

Looks great! This is so much like our ‘Payasa’ :) We make it with lentils and without the pandan leaves of course.

What an interesting and delicious-looking recipe! The only time I’ve tried beans in a dessert was in a Pinto Bean Pie, served at a small restaurant in Bicknell, Utah called the SunGlow Cafe (they also serve pickle pie and oatmeal pie–all are oddly delicious).

Beautiful photos as always!

I’ve had red and black beans in desserts since I was young, so having them in savoury dishes is weird for me too…..Your adzuki bean porridge looks delicious- I love how you’ve used pandan leaves- I’ve never done that before (will definitely give it a try) but I love the flavour of pandan, and it sounds like a great idea!

37 Nava Krishnan March 4, 2012 at 9:32 AM

Ah another one of Malaysian fav dessert and just like you, I drool over beans. Pandan leaves are growing like crazy in my garden and I normally go for these given a choice between vanilla.

Love the pics you have attached, outstanding they are.

Kiran, you don’t understand how CRAZY I am about azuki! This is very unique style of azuki recipe and I’m so curious. I need to check my Asian store to see if they have Pandan leaves. I used to look for fresh veggie area but heard that it is in frozen section. I was looking at a wrong corner. Vanilla, coconut milk, and azuki? Hmm perfect recipe to me!

Hi Kiran,
After spending 5 1/2 yrs in Singapore, I have a fondness towards Nonya desserts. I love the bubur cha cha, ice kacang, kuehs and cakes. I love pandan leaves. How on earth did you find pandan leaves here. I substituted with few drops of kewra in place of pandan when I made a pandan chiffon cake. I love the red bean dessert and the red bean ice cream….I want to visit Singapore NOW!

110 Bazil Zainal July 2, 2014 at 12:30 AM

Hi there! I was just wondering, where can I find Adzuki beans in Malaysia? I’ve found the local variant of ‘Kacang Merah’, but they look a little different to these Adzuki beans and are more similarly shaped to the kidney bean.

Are Adzuki beans the same as ‘Kacang Merah’? Or am I really on to something here.

Good post btw!


111 Kiran July 2, 2014 at 12:47 AM

Hi Bazil — it’s similar tasting to “Kacang Merah”, so go ahead with it. Let me know how it tastes :)
