That aşure stuff looks interesting and delicious. Don't think I've ever eaten whole beans in a desert before! I'll need to wait for a big family gathering before making this though, cause it doesn't look easy to do in small amounts. The holidays are coming up, so maybe I'll make it for Xmas or New Year.
It's definitely a traditional holiday dessert and most families will make enough to feed the whole neighborhood :)
I like to call it the kitchen sink pudding, because it literally is like someone took a handful of everything in the pantry and cooked it all together.
