This Black Sesame Mooncake Filling is made by combining with black sesame and mung bean to yield a smooth Black Sesame Mung Bean paste with nice fragrant and no bitter taste that will suit most people. Since black sesame contains a lot of oil, you don’t have to add any oil when making paste with it.

Black sesame has a nice fragrant, but it has bitter taste that some people might not like. If you use only black sesame to make the paste, it will have strong bitter taste and more oily.
