Maki-san,
I tried to make some azuki bean paste-filled buns the other day, and while the steamed bread turned out great, the azuki bean paste was...just okay. I followed a recipe I found online. I was wondering if you had a recipe for the paste? I would buy it pre-made, but I had a hard time finding azuki beans in my town, let alone premade azuki bean paste.
Help?
Onegai shimasu!

Sure - here's my recipe for tsubuan (the chunky kind of azuki an).

Thanks, this recipe looks great! Oh, and I agree that it should always be spelled azuki. The package I bought said adzuki and I was like "grr, that's not how you spell it." No consonant sound can follow another consonant sound in Japanese, except for n. I mean, I'm sure you know that though.

Yes, but since all romaji is phonetic, it's spelled that way to show the emphasis on the hard Z sound. It's just the pronunciation difference, like sometime m and n are switched about in translation when they use the ん (n) sound. Also don't forget つ (tsu)!

I only just recently found a natural foods store that sells not only the proper beans, but bonito and mochi! :D There's so many recipes that opened up to me that I want to try, including this one.
