Soak adzuki beans overnight. Rinse and cook with one bay leaf until soft. Drain excess water.
Rinse and cook red rice on your stove top or with a rice cooker.
While the beans and rice are cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.
When the rice and beans are done, combine all the ingredients. Add flour to thicken (as needed).
Heat olive oil in frying pan.
Fry 4-5 minutes per side.
We ate these with freshly baked buns Jeremy made and some ketchup I whipped up on the stove top from four whole tomatoes, one clove garlic, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, salt, pepper, date sugar and vinegar.
