What to do with cooked mung beans?

i cooked a whole lot of mung beans yesterday. Now I'm hoping to get your ideas for what to do with them? I want to make Heidi Swanson's mung bean hummus, but other than that... I'm looking for inspiration!

No idea, but here's what not to do with them: https://www.youtube.com... (Sorry, my mind goes there whenever I hear "mung bean".)

Depends on how you cooked it but Maangchi on youtube has several authentic Korean preparations.
Video for Mung Bean Pancakes (Bindaetteok) https://www.youtube.com...
Video for Pan Fried Rice Cakes (Bukkumi): https://www.youtube.com...
She also has several more.
I know Thai food also uses them in desserts mainly as garnish for mango with coconut sticky rice.

Split mung beans or whole?

Either way, look into Vietnamese recipes. We like to put them into both savory and sweet dishes. For the sweet, make che dau xanh, which is a pudding like soup. Here's a recipe that you can jump into the middle since the mung beans are already cooked: http://runawayrice.com...

You can use as a filling or an addition to the filling for Banh Xeo, the sizzling Vietnamese crepe filled with pork, shrimp, and/or split mung beans, like this one http://www.hungryhuy.com...

Or Banh Cong which is a fried shrimp and mung bean cake (more like a fritter), http://danangcuisine.com...

Mung beans are now added to my grocery list. I've never cooked Indian food before - and I've only eaten it once, but that sounds so good that I need to make it.

Not really relevant but one of Ginger's nicknames is "our little mung bean" - do not ask me why as I have no idea.

Indonesian Mung bean porridge! Something like http://indonesiaeats.com... ; just dump the cooked mung bean on pan, add sugar and water (in necessary) (see step 3), and finish the rest of the recipe.
