Homemade Tau Sha Piah (Flaky mung beans biscuits) 豆沙饼



This is another work under 吃饱饭没事做 (Having nothing better to do after being fed). I just like to try out making this "Tau Sha Piah" even i can easily buy this from the outside shops...when this biscuit hot came out from oven, it tastes like the one which is selling in the shop as it is very flaky and smells good !

But, the tedious steps, repeat the rolling steps for each of the small biscuit..

Homemade Tau Sha Piah (Flaky mung beans biscuits) 豆沙饼
(recipe source: as seen in Jane’s corner who adapted from 安琪玲的天空)

Filling
400g peeled mung beans (soaked overnight, steamed and mashed),
1 1/2tsp white pepper
2tsp salt
250g fine sugar

Homemade Tau Sha Piah (Flaky mung beans biscuits) 豆沙饼100g cooking oil, 10 shallots (sliced thinly)

Dough A (oil dough)
125g flour
35g shortening
35g cooking oil

Dough B (water dough)
250g sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp fine sugar
65g shortening
120-130ml water

Method
Filling
1. Combine sugar, salt, and mashed beans in a large bowl. Mix well.
2. Heat oil in wok or pan. Stir-fry the shallots till fragrant and lightly browned, removed fried shallot and chopped into small pcs and grind it, set aside for later use.
3. Stir in the bean mixture, stir-fry on low heat till it becomes dry and able to form a ball.
4. Remove from heat and stir in fried shallots. Cool completely, divide and shape filling into 34 equal portion balls (around 20-22g).

To make Tau Sha Piah
1. Prepare dough A and B separately using the same method. Bring together all ingredients for each dough, mix well and knead to form soft dough. Cover and let them rest for 20 minutes. Divide and shape each dough into 34 equal portion balls.
2. Wrap dough A with dough B. Roll it out into long rectangle shape. Then roll up the dough like the swiss roll. Repeat this step twice.
3. Roll it out into a circle and place the filling at the center. Bring all edges together and pinch to seal.
4. Egg wash and bake in preheated oven at 180 degree C for 20 minutes or till golden brown.

Hi Sonia, I really miss this yummy tau sha piah. Love the colour! The 2nd picture reminds me of the peanut cookies that we normally eat during CNY, the ones that will melt in mouth one, do you have that recipe? This one won't be "laku" in my house, so I can only appreciate here.

Hi,
I tried this tar sha piah this morning and it was a success.
My only concern is why is the filling so green? Is mung bean the same as green bean?
