Tau Suan should be a familiar dessert item for us in Singapore! It’s one of the popular local dessert here, and it’s quite easy to whip up at home too.
I first tried this Tau Suan recipe back in 2016, which is quite easy to make and fool-proof. Just take note to keep stirring the syrup when you pour in the slurry, as it can form lumps quickly if you do not stir constantly.

How Can I Make This Sweet Soup Dessert?
To make this dessert soup, we will need to steam the split mung beans, which are dehusked split green beans.
Here, we are using mostly gula melaka to sweeten the thickened syrup. You can also simply use white sugar, and adjust the sweetness according to your preference. I am using gula melaka because my family members like it.
While I prefer to serve it hot, this dessert can also be served cold.
