ONDE-ONDE KELAPA

Onde-Onde also known as "Buah Melaka" is a traditional Malaysian kuih made of either sweet potato or glutinous rice flour.The kuih got its name from "buah melaka", since it resemblance the size and shape of "buah Melaka". The original recipe used gula Melaka - palm sugar as the filling, however for this reipe I used grated coconut. The freshly grated coconut gives it another level of texture and an added aroma.



ONDE-ONDE (Adapted from RASAMALAYSIA)
INGREDIENTS:
250 g Glutinous Rice Flour
200 ml Pandan Juice
150 g  Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar), finely chopped
100 g Grated Coconut
A Pinch Of Sea Salt

METHOD:
In a large bowl, combine the glutinous rice flour with Pandan juice and knead lightly. Pinch a small piece of the dough (about 40 g) and drop it into boiling water. When the dough rises up the surface, remove it with a slotted spoon and shake off the excess water. Mix it back into the main dough and knead well to form smooth dough. Cover the dough and set aside for about 15 minutes.
Mix the grated coconut with a pinch of salt and steam for about 2 – 3 minutes and let it cool completely.
Bring a pot of water to boil. Pinch a small piece of dough (about 15 g each) and flatten lightly. Fill the center of the dough with palm sugar. Roll them in your palm to form a smooth ball and cook the glutinous rice balls in the boiling water. When the rice balls float to the surface, remove them with a slotted spoon and shake off the excess water.
Coat the rice balls with grated coconut and serve immediately.
COOK’S NOTE:
To make the Pandan Juice. Blend 10 Pandan leaves with 220 ml water.

Kuih yang cukup popular dan tidak perlu pengenalan. Popular bukan sahaja pada masyarakat Melayu malah semua bangsa di Malaysia. Kuih ini juga banyak dikaitkan dengan masyarakat Baba-Nyonya. Memang menarik dengan menggunakan buah Melaka sebagi intinya. Macam om putih cakap "melt in the mouth".  Untuk resipi kali ini saya tidak menggunakan gula melaka sebaliknya saya gantikan dengan kelapa parut yang dimasak bersama gula putih, balance dari inti kuih dadar. Boleh tahan enaknya, rasa macam coconut candy.
