To celebrate Hari Raya Festival tomorrow, I decided to make Ondeh-Ondeh, a Malay Kueh.
Sarah loved this malay kueh but the ones that are normally found in the market are made purely of glutinous rice flour only. I told her the authentic Ondeh-Ondeh is make with sweet potatoes and glutinous rice.
I rubbed the sweet potato into 300 gm glutinous rice flour + 2 tbsp. wheat flour (instead of tapioca flour).
To prepare the grated coconut - I use about 2/3 of a coconut, the balance I pan fry them to make some kerisik. Mix grated coconut with 1/4 tsp of salt and steam for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Roll a piece of dough into a ball and then flatten it. Place about 1 tsp of grated gula melaka in the centre.
Seal well and roll into ball again. (Sarah's hand seen here hehehe).
Drop the ondeh-ondeh into pot of boiling water. When it is cooked through, it will float to the surface of the water. Scoop up with strainer and place them into the grated coconut. Shake the plate to coat the ondeh-ondeh evenly.
Sarah really liked these and she is surprised that she can taste the sweet potato as well.
