Red Bean Paste
made from azuki beans

is used as 

for Buns and Pancakes

and Desserts

It is 
commonly used in Japan

It has been a tedious preparation 
before I come to know of this pressure cooker method

300g azuki beans, rinsed & drained
1200ml water (4 X amount of beans)
200g sugar (can be reduced)
1/8 tsp salt

1) cook beans with water in the pressure cooker (beans function)
2) when cooked, drain beans with a sieve to remove excess water
3) into a pot add cooked beans & sugar
4) boil over low stove heat to dissolve sugar
5) stir in salt & leave to cool
6) blend to the texture you prefer, 
    either fine (koshian) or chunky (tsubuan)
7) it will dry further if left in the fridge for 24 hours

can be used immediately or freeze in 100g packets up to one month
