Red beans (also known as Azuki beans) are used widely in Korean cuisine in dishes such as steamed rice with red beans, red bean rice cake, rice cake balls with sweet red bean past filling (gyeongdan), sweet red bean soup (danpatjuk), sweet red bean porridge, and shaved ice with sweet red beans (patbingsu).
The dried red beans are hard so you’ll probably have to soak them in cold water for hours before you can use them, or boil and simmer them until they get soft.
