This is my version of red bean porridge or shiruko.

adzuki beans
3 corms star anise
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon white sugar

Soak the adzuki beans in water overnight.

Rinse and measure how much adzuki beans you have, add water at about a 3:1 ratio and bring to the boil uncovered at a high heat.

Add star anise and cover. Simmer on low until beans start to fall apart slightly.

Drain off excess water, crush beans up and add coconut milk. Stir over medium heat till bubbling.

Serve with a little sugar and a cup of milky tea.
