Red bean paste or Azuki bean paste is a sweet, dark red bean paste originating from China. It is used in Chinese cuisine, Japanese confectionery, and Korean cuisine. It is prepared by boiling and mashing azuki beans and then sweetening the paste with sugar or honey. The husk of the beans may be removed by sieving before sweetening, which leads to a smoother and more homogeneous paste.
Red bean paste is used in various Korean snack foods and desserts; including: Baram Dduk, BungEoPpang (붕어빵), HoTteok (호떡), PatBingSu (팥빙수), PatDanJa (팥단자), PatJuk (팥죽), PatTteok (팥떡)
