Tau Suan

Tau Suan
Pronunciation: Dao Suean

Meaning 'split green bean soup', this is a dessert that can be found in hawker centres and markets all over Singapore. The beans are known as moong dal, which are actually green in colour when husked and yellow when dehusked. This explains why the dessert is obviously yellow in colour despite its name. Served hot, it is usually accompanied by a few small chunks of you tiao (fried dough).
