Mung beans boiled with ginkgo nuts can be categorized as a dessert. Some people like to cook mung beans  with ginger because of its medicinal value.The reason that I heard from older people is because mung beans can cause heartburn  to certain people and so by adding ginger to this dessert , it can help to reduce this problem.

 Ginkgo nut has the ability to prevent memory loss and prevent or delay dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. It is also good for blood circulation.

1. Boil the mung beans with 1/4 cup of ginkgo nuts and water until tender.

2.  Once cooked, add coconut milk together with brown sugar and screw pine leaf. Then add salt to taste and stir it well for about 10 minutes until it boil again.

3.Serve it hot in a bowl.

Note: Soak mung bean and ginkgo nut in water for at least 4 hours. This is to quicken the cooking time. This dessert can also be cooked in a slow cooker. If you want it to cook fast, set to high heat and let it boil till tender. Add 1 cup of water first if you use the slow cooker. Once the beans and nuts are soft, add in the remaining water.
