Ondeh Ondeh

I made some ondeh ondeh one Sunday afternoon when both my mum and I were particularly bored. They took something like 2+ hours to make, probably because I'm noob at trying to stuff the gula melaka into the green dough!

Anyway, this adapted recipe comes from a favourite blog of mine Seasaltwithfood.

250g glutinous rice flour
200 ml of pandan juice (blend 10 pandan leaves with 220 ml water)
150 g gula melaka, finely chopped
100 g grated coconut (1/2 a coconut worth)

1) Combine glutinous rice flour with pandan juice and knead lightly

2) Pinch a small piece of the dough (about golf ball size) and drop it into boiling water.

3) When the dough rises up to the surface, remove it with a spoon and shake off the excess water.

4) Mix it back into the dough and knead well to form a smooth dough.

5) Cover the dough and set aside for 15 minutes.

6) Mix the grated coconut with a pinch of salt and steam for about 2-3 minutes. Cool completely.

7) Bring a pot of water to boil.

8) Pinch a small piece of dough and flatten slightly and form a cup shape in your hands. Fill the centre with gula melaka. Roll in palm to form a smooth ball and cook the balls in boiling water. (There's actually no need for a rolling pin.)

9)When the balls float up, remove them with a spoon and shake off excess water.

10) Coat the rice balls with grated coconut.

Finally, enjoy that burst of gula melaka in your mouth!
