Mung Bean Sticky Rice (Xoi Vo)

Here is another Vietnamese sticky rice. I've never eat this before but my husband like it since it have a lot of mung bean with it. I like this after trying it. This it's very good since it have the aroma of the mung bean and chewy too. Add in some sesame sugar and it's super good.


1 1/2 cup glutinous rice (soak 4+hrs or overnight)
1 1/2 cup split mung bean (soak 4+hrs)
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3-4 tbsp coconut powder (optional)

Sesame sugar:
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp roasted sesame


1. Drain mung bean and steam for 20 minutes. After steaming then mash it finely.
2. Drain the glutinous rice and mix with the mashed mung bean. Add in the salt and mix well.
3. Steam the mung bean rice on a cheesecloth for 15 minutes. Then add in the sugar and coconut powder and stir well. Steam for another couple minutes until the rice is tender. The rice should taste and a little sweet. The rice should also be separated and not stick together.
4. Serve alone or with some sugar sesame. Remember to pound some of the sesame to give it more fragrance.

(Note: The right way to eat this is to press the sticky rice with hands before eating. For me I just use the spoon eat this.)
