Peel the piece of pumpkin and dice it into similar sized cubes.



Pour the mung beans into a pot and add water (around 3 cups of water or more if necessary). Boil at low heat until the beans turn soft.

Add the diced pumpkin into the pot and continue to cook for about 10 minutes.
The pumpkin cubes should be cooked soft enough that you can use a spoon to mash them lightly.
Add sugar and coconut milk.
Stir the mixture until the sugar completely dissolves.
Let it simmer until you have a thick texture.
Take the pot off the heat to cool.
Dust the soup with a pinch of shredded coconut and it is ready to serve.



For a simple dish, this soup is very versatile as it can be served both hot and cold. The light aroma of mung beans should blend perfectly with the sweet taste of pumpkin and coconut milk.

Now close your eyes and have a taste, can you feel it melting on your tongue?
