Sunday, June 03, 2007

Some called it Onde Onde and some called it "oneh oneh". I've never like gula melaka and this is the first time I make Ondeh Ondeh. Mum was helping me with the ingredient preparation and Ben was busying snapping.

Our Recipe

-200gm of sweet potato(steamed and mashed)
-250gm of glutinous rice flour (shifted)

Mix (B)
-Pinch of salt
-50mls of water
-1 tbsp of tapioca flour

-150gm of gula melaka

-Pinch of salt
First, prepare ingredient B. Some will advise to boil them in a pot but to me, need not boiled water, can gradually add hot water into the bowl with flour, remember to stir it till it is transparent.

Then, add ingredient B(bit by bit) into the glutinous rice flour follow by mashed potatoes. mix them well until it forms a dough. Do take note: if you feel it is too wet, add more glutinous rice flour. If it is too dry, add a little ingredient B.

Roll the pieces of dough into small balls (ping pong ball sized)with your palms. Then flatten the ball and put a bit of the grated gula melaka in the centre. Pinch to seal, then roll again into spheres.

Drop the balls into boiling water until they float to the surface.

Roll them with fresh grated coconut as coating.
