4. Prepare a small soup pot, pour water, add agar, maltose, stir evenly, and put it on the gas stove. Heat on a low heat and stir while heating to melt the agar completely. (The agar can be soaked for 30 minutes in advance. Zerui’s mother forgot to put it in the boiling pot directly. It feels that the finished product has no effect, but it will take more time to completely melt.)

5. After the agar is completely melted, add the red bean paste, cook on medium-low heat until it boils, and stir until it becomes a little viscous. If it becomes thinner, it will cook, but use a spoon to keep stirring.

7. Find a suitable mold and pour the red bean soup into the mold. I use a non-stick baking pan. When it is not hot to the touch, put it in the refrigerator until it is completely solidified. You don’t need to put it in the refrigerator, it will freeze when it is basically cool. The refrigerator is just to be faster.

8. Use a knife to cut along the side of the mold, take the red bean soup out of the mold, cut into long strips, and then cut each long strip into small pieces you like.

1. Friends who like to eat sweets can also add some sugar when cooking the red bean paste. Generally, the finished red bean paste on the market contains sugar itself.
2. You can also make pure red bean soup without chestnut, which is also delicious.
