Monggo Bread ( Pan de Monggo )


Monggo Bread

(Pan De Monggo)


Monggo Beans or Mung Beans-they are small, ovoid in shape, and green in color. It is used as a foodstuff in both savory and sweet dishes. (source : wikipedia)

I grew up in the Philippines, My family plant Monggo Beans in our little farm in Valencia, Bukidnon.As, I remembered monggo beans are very easy to cultivated. Since then, I remembered  Monggo prepared mostly on savory dishes like ginataan, guisado and to my surprised some bakery in my place make monggo bread. My Mom, always have its way to make Monggo, taste so delicious in very simple way mostly on savory dishes accompanied with rice. One of my favorite bread in the Philippines is the Monggo Bread usually in Ensaymada form, So. today why not make it myself. ( wink ) While searching for that right recipe for the Monggo Bread, I stumble upon this video on youtube ( aeriskitchen) on how to make sweet red bean buns and it was so simple and yet look delicious. So, I was like! aha!! instead of red bean paste put as filling, why not monggo beans because, I love monggo beans and it suits on my taste-bud, I love to mention how (aeriskitchen) made the bread look like flower, its pretty amazing.  I was really inspired! I'll show you how simple it is to make this bread and who knows it might be your next favorite snack of the day. My family loved it and hopefully yours too:) wink..

Ingredients:

Bring the Monggo Beans and water to boil until it soften and mushy.
Add sugar, depend on how sweet you want it to be

3 1/2 cups bread flour                        
2/3 cup- Lukewarm water                 
2/3 cup- Lukewarm milk                   
1/4 cup sugar                                  
1/4 cup butter melted

4.) Let it rise for 1-2 hours
 
5.) Divide the dough into 16 pieces of small balls. Flatten the little dough balls, using the rolling pin, roll it until its big enough to fill the monggo filling. (I use 1 teaspoon of filling per dough balls. )
6.) Using scissors cut little bit on the side to make it like flower. Put it on greased baking pan, Let it rise for 30 minutes.
7.) Brush it egg wash, Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until its golden brown.

    8. Don't you need the yeast bubbly first before adding it to the flour?

    11. I add mine to the flour, along with the sugar and add the warm milk and water mixture and it always came out perfect. You can also let the yeast bubbly first before adding, whatever makes you feel comfortable.:) Both process works. i just prefer adding it to the flour:)

    1. Hello Kheith,
      I'm using 1 pack (1/4 oz) of yeast which is equivalent to 1 teaspoon. Hope it helps! Thank you for stopping by and keep coming back:)

      Delete
    2. Hello Kheith, I was so wrong about the 1 teaspoon. It's 2 1/4 tablespoon for 1/4 oz or 1 little pack of yeast. Thanks!:)

  12. I am trying to look for yeast but I always see large packs in the supermarket. I will try to ask some bakeshop here so I can make this one too.

    2. Hi Miss Campbell! I just want to make sure how much yeast you used in this recipe since you just listed 1 pack of yeast. So I read the comments hoping I'm not the only one asking about it. You mentioned you used 1/4 oz of yeast but you said it is equivalent to 1 teaspoon in reply to Kheith on Nov. 20, 2013 and here you said 2 1/2 tablespoon in reply to Mr. Domencil. I searched online for the yeast conversation and here's the link:

      Please let me know if all I need is 1/4 oz coz I can find those easy in the store. Thanks and more power. Can't wait to try your monggo bread. This is one of my fave! God bless!

    3. Thank you so much for this comment AJ, I checked the link that you provided on my blog, Thanks for noticing, I wasn't aware until I read your comment. I also looked into the yeast packet in my pantry and 1/4 oz is equivalent to 2 1/2 tablespoon. Once again, Thank you for your comment and let me know how your monggo bread turn out.

    4. Hi again, Miss Campbell! Monggo bread brings me back home. I was reading the comments and I found out you're from Valencia. I am from Davao City and I took Engineering at CMU but transferred to Davao after a year. Got tired of going home every week for 6 long hours bus ride. Anyways, super lami kaayo ang monggo bread, thanks for the recipe. :-)

    5. Hello AJ,
      I was on vacation for a week that's why it took me several days to go reply your comment. What a coincidence, I went to CMU also as BS Agribusiness Management (hahaha) small world. It's a long ride- I'm glad you liked the monggo bread recipe. It's also one of my favorite.Thanks agian, AJ. Keep in touch:)

  17. I've tried baking bread but it was not successful so if I see some yeasts in the recipe, nagdadalawang isip ako.

  18. Can I use rapid rise yeast and if i use it do i still need a warm water to dilute the yeast

    ReplyDelete

    1. I think it would work just fine. The recipe that I tried on making this Mango Bread was to combine the yeast into the dry ingredients. Whatever makes you feel comfortable of doing your dough, Manuel. Thanks for the comment.
