  3. Hello, thank you for sharing this recipe. It worked the first time I made it but the next few times I made it, my dough would not thicken. I would continue to stir after everything was dissolved but it would never get the thick feeling at all. What would you recommend I do differently? I have followed your ingredients and step by step process. I just keep getting stuck at the heating the dough process. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

  4. This is my family's most favorite dessert we are vietnamese So yea and when I found this recipe

  5. Tang, where do you get your mung beans (green gram) from.  We are located in High Point, NC and are having a hard time finding them.  We would appreciate your help and/or suggestions.  Thank you.

  6. I love your video! So simple yet so well explained. 😀
    Your voice is amazing too! It sounds like those shampoo commercials you see on TV LOL

  7. If you don't want to make, you can find these at any Vietnamese bakery. Some of the grocery stores sell them too.

  8. Hello Tom, I had a lot of this as a child too and loved the color and texture. I usually have frozen mashed mung bean onhand and it makes the preparation faster. Happy Cooking!
