How to make shaved ice with red beans using Multo® by CookingPal®?
1. How to cook soft and tender red beans?
Rinse and add beans into the mixing bowl, with the bottom heating elements of Multo, boil them in water and cook thoroughly until they are soft. Be careful, red beans contain a natural protein, Lectin. In raw or undercooked beans, the protein can act as a toxin. It could only be removed by soaking and cooking thoroughly. Suggested cooking time will be at least 30 minutes under boiling to destroy lectins.
2. Grate almonds.
Another function of Multo is acting as a food processor. Thanks to the sharp blade, Multo can easily grate the hard nuts into small pieces. You could also adjust the power and time within the step, which allow you to achieve different texture, grate into fine powder or small crunchy chunks, it's your call!
3. Crush the ice cubes and frozen milk.
Using the TURBO button, crush these frozen ingredients until desired size or consistency is reached. This is also called Korean snow because its texture just like snow, feathery and creamy, dissolves in the mouth a split second.
