  1. Put the red bean paste in a pot.
  2. Pour some water (about 4- 5 cups) and 1 cup of sugar (depends on your taste) and boil it.
  3. Mix one cup of sweet rice powder, a pinch of salt and 1 tbs of sugar in a bowl.
  4. Add ½ cup-1 cup of hot water in “3” and mix it with a spoon first and fold it by hand to make dough. (The amount of hot water varies depending on the dryness of sweet rice powder you use, so first use ½ cup of hot water to make your dough and put more hot water while kneading the dough)
  5. Make small rice balls with the dough about 0.5 cm diameter.
  6. When the red bean soup boils, add the rice balls and cook it.
  7. Keep stirring the soup and it will get thicker.
  8. Ladle the soup into a bowl and add a few pine nuts on top and sprinkle some cinnamon powder and serve it.

    Is it true that you add 1 cup of sugar… twice? So that the total amount of sugar would be about 2 cups + 1 tbsp?

      Yes, danpatjuk is very sweet dessert. But you could use less sugar depending on your taste. Check out the direction 2.
      Good luck with making delicious danpatjuk!

    Dear Maangchi, where can I find how many servings this (and other) recipes makes?
    I might have overlooked, however I have not found how many servings the recipes make.
    Thank you for your time.
    ps; I love red bean products and most korean food, it is so healthy and delicious.
    I recommend your site to many of my friends and colleagues, and they all love it.

    Hi Maangchi, I tried to make the rice ball. After kneading, it is very very sticky, when cooked it, the texture is very soft and doesn’t have the “springy” feel when eat it. Why is it like that? Any step that I might have done wrongly?

      “After kneading, it is very very sticky” Maybe the dough needs more rice flour? And the rice cake balls are more chewy when the porridge cools down.

        Thanks, Maangchi! I think I have put too much water or bought wrong powder.
        Will try again next time..:-)

    Hi Maangchi! I had difficulty getting the red beans to properly soften. Would pre-soaking them help or should I just keep simmering them until they are soft enough? Thank you!

      Use a pressure cooker or simmer for a long time until very soft. You can add more water if water runs out.

    Maangchi, I have a 17 .6 oz/500g (5 servings of 1/3 cup in the packet so almost 2 cups) packet of red bean paste. How would that equate to the paste made from 1 cup of red beans?
