Onde Onde~~

Nothing beats sitting in a nice cozy restaurant sipping on a cup of hot tea and sampling on dim sum on a nice, rainy Sunday Morning, at 8 a.m. with friends and colleagues.

I know, i know what some of you are going to say.

"What?! Sunday wake up so early? Sunday is for sleeping you know!"

Well, it's my fault actually, they did not exactly choose to have breakfast at 8 a.m in the morning at Feng Man Lou. It's because i had something to do. Yes, as you can see from the above topic, i had schedule myself earlier on to make onde onde on Sunday morning. I had asked my mom to help me buy grated coconut and sweet potatoes from the pasar. I can't possibly break her little old heart and tell her i no jadi made the kuih after she went to all those trouble to buy it, right?!

Got inspired by this purple onde onde. The colour is natural and looks so damn nice. Can you believe that there is no colouring in it? Unfortunately, i can't find any sweet potatoes that is really purple purple. It's half white and purple-ish.. so the result... u know la. Sigh. Especially after i add in pandan juice.. It become dark green colour. Haha! Ok, colour doesn't matter as long as it taste nice!

The recipe is also adapted from The Baker.

Ingredients for Dough:
350 g glutinous flour
250 g sweet potatoes (purple/orange also can la)
3 tbsp pandan juice
1/2 tsp salt
2 & 1/2 tsp water

200g gula melaka (chop to pieces)
grated coconut + bit of salt

1. Cook and mashed the sweet potatoes.
2. Sieve flour, add in mashed potatoes, pandan juice, salt and water. Knead to form dough.
3. It it's too dry, add in water bit by bit until its a soft dough yet not too sticky.
4. Form dough into small marble sized ball, make a small hole in the middle of the ball and fill it with some gula melaka pieces.
5. Wrap them up nicely and roll them into balls. Make sure the gula does not leak out.
6. Boil a pot of water. Cooked the balls in the boiling water. It's cook when all the balls float to the surface.
7. Take them out (drain) and roll them into prepared grated coconut.

note: if you do not want your onde onde to be too sweet, just add in small pieces of gula melaka. I had replace most of the water with pandan juice when preparing my dough (since i know it wont be purple anymore) and hence, my onde is in green colour. hehe

Very filling now. Ate too many onde onde =x
