Tau suan is a dessert that made from peeled mung bean, that’s why it is yellow. The process to make this dish is not so hard but the result will be comforting your mouth. This dessert is served with some crunchy topping. The topping used deep-fried bread makes this dessert even more delicious.
Cheap yet Appetizing
Most of the seller will sell tau suan in the morning and afternoon but you can also make it at home, I will post the recipe for this in the next post. Commonly tau suan sold by Chinese. This dish is cheap yet can make you fill full. Some people have it in the morning as their breakfast some people also have it as their dessert in the afternoon before dinner. There is no restriction whenever you want it, you have it. In West Kalimantan, Indonesia most of the seller will sell it around IDR 6000 – IDR 12.000 (around $0,60 – $1). It will again depend on your taste bud and your budget.
Full Portion just for you
Tu suan is so gooey and thick, I prefer to eat it while it’s warm and eating this in the morning as breakfast make me full until I get my lunch. I think that’s because of the sweetness and the mung bean that basically good for people who wanna lose some weight. I used to buy tau suan in jl. Gajah mada, Pontianak. The seller is so humble and when you ask him to give more topping he will give you as much as you want. I used to add the topping tho. In the morning people buy this after they have their workout or after riding their bicycle.
When it comes to food there’s nothing wrong to eat it whenever you want just remember about the portion, everything has to be in moderation.
So are you hungry now? Go get some tau suan, the comfort sweet gooey dessert for your hungry stomach.
