It is impossible to translate this literally. It means red beans in the style of a mason’s plaster, not a flattering description. It really does not have the consistency of plaster or wet concrete, but is a bit gloopy when contrasted with the very light texture of, say, Pois et Riz Collés. Whatever its name, it is a very good dish and an interesting example of the many forms rice and beans can take from island to island.
