Mung Bean Cake With Coconut Milk

I found this recipe years ago, but don't remember where. I have made it a few times to accompany an Asian meal, and it has always been well-received. Don't let the shallots scare you off. They are quite sweet tasting when browned, like caramelized onions. Mung beans can be found in Asian markets, or Asian sections of larger supermarkets. This is a very dense, moist cake.
