So, at last i decided to make his favourite kueh to bring along...the "Ondeh-Ondeh".
Its been a long long time i've since made this kueh. Let me see.....i think it was about 20 years ago. No joking larr.....really 20 years!!! That time i was just a teenager, having some cooking fun at my friends house..haha! Wow!! Really a long time ago huh...;p Yes, i still keep the recipe but with some slight changes. (mix and match with the recipe book i have now)....
The result ha.....yea, nice! But the filling inside was not much, due to the wrapping skill...hee hee!
Will make these again in 2 days time for my aunty, who we will celebrate the lantern festival with, coming weekend. So i must make sure the filling inside is full enough this time!
Here's the recipe.....
10pcs pounded Pandan leaves
1 tbsp Tapioca flour
300g Glutinuos flour
120g mashed Pumpkin / orange sweet potatoes (i used pumpkin here)
1 tbsp Sugar
* 150-200g Palm sugar (grated) - Filling
* 1 Grated coconut - Coating
~ Bring to boil the (A) and strain. Keep aside
~ Steamed the pumpkin / sweet potatoes for about 5-8 minutes until soft and mashed.
~ Mix well the Glutiniuos rice flour, sugar and mashed pumpkin/ sweet potatoes from ingredients (C)
~ Boil (B), the 85ml water with 1 tbsp tapioca flour over low heat, stirring till almost transparent.
~ Pout the tapioca mixture immediately into (C), stir and mix well while slowly add in the (A) to form a smooth dough. (if the dough is too soft, add in glutinous flour)
~ Bring to boil at least half pot of water, then take a small portion of dough and wrap in the grated palm sugar, seal properly and roll into a ball, and put into the boiling water after wrapped.
~ When the balls surfaces, keep boiling for another 1-2 minutes, remove and roll over the fresh grated coconut, and serve!
The texture is very nice...very "Q" ...as in mandarine....hee hee :) Oh about the colour here, its the original colourfrom the pumpkin. No colour added here! If you like it to be green like the one selling outside, do use the white sweet potatoes to replace the pumpkin, but have to steam alittle longer. Then add a few drops of green colouring. But why not just the original colour from the tasty and fresh pumpkins / orange sweet potatoes?? Try it out!
