Hong dou tang
(紅豆汤, pinyin: hóng dòu tāng) or red bean soup is a popular dish in Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and other Asian countries. It is categorized as a tang shui 糖水, (pinyin: táng shǔi) (literally translated as sugar water), or sweet soup. It is often served cold during the summer, and hot in the winter. Leftover red bean soup can also be frozen to make ice pops and is a popular dessert. In Cantonese cuisine, a red bean soup made from rock sugar, sun-dried tangerine peels, and lotus seeds is commonly served as a dessert at the end of a restaurant or banquet meal. Common variations include the addition of ingredients such as sago (西米, pinyin: xī mi), tapioca, coconut milk, ice cream, glutinous rice balls, or purple rice. The two types of sugar used interchangeably are rock sugar and sliced sugar (片糖).[1] Similar dishes[edit] Japanese Shiruko
