How to make roasted soybean flour at home /kinako

黃豆粉/きなこ/黄粉

Published: April 24, 2020

Roasted soybean flour/kinako is commonly used in many Asian sweets, usually with ricecake, such as Lvdagun/驴打滚/Rolling Donkey, Glutinous Rice Rolls Stuffed with Read Bean Paste, my favourite old Beijing Traditional snack. I also like to sprinkle a tablespoon on my hot and spicy wonton or noodles. It can be obtained in Asian grocery stores but sometimes it’s seasoned with sugar and might be too sweet for me. So I would like to make it myself. And actually it’s not complicated at all, what you need is some soybean and a tablespoon of sugar.

When roasting the soybeans, some would use oven. I would prefer using a pan or wok, so that it’s a lot easier to observe.
