Pandan Ondeh-Ondeh

Saw many colourful kuihs on sale at the market places of Thailand cities and towns.  So colourful and I wonder where the colours came from.  I still prefer home-cooked from my kitchen as the sweetness is more acceptable.
My favourite kuih muih - Ondeh-ondeh.  This time simple pandan flavour with gula melaka filling.  Just as good as my previous post on Pumpkin Ondeh-ondeh.
Verdict - soft, chewy dough and not too sweet gula melaka filling coated with fresh grated white coconut seasoned with some salt.
As usual, you can get quite a lot from one portion of the recipe.  I made 1 and 1/2 portion, managed to get about 80 to share with neighbours.
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 78 - modified
[makes 50-60 pieces]
250 gm glutinous rice flour
5 blades of pandan leaves blended with 250 ml water to extract 250 ml pandan juice [may need more or less]
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp oil

some gula melaka - chopped
250 gm white grated coconut mixed with 1 tsp salt and steam for 5 minutes, cool for coating
  1. Skin - combine flour with water then add in sugar and oil.
  2. Knead into a smooth dough.  Rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Divide into small portions [about size of kuih ee].
  4. Roll into ball, flatten and wrap up some filling.  Seal and roll into balls.
  5. Bring a pot of water to boil, drop prepared glutinous rice balls into water,  cook until rice balls floats up.
  6. Dish out with a serrated ladle.  Drop cooked rice balls into steamed grated coconut.  Coat well.
  7. Serve.

Kimmy, I love ondeh-ondeh! But so lazy to make. Your neighbours are so lucky!

Thanks Madeline, hope your attempts turned out well and you need not have to guiltily dump them away. I think our kuihs suits me more cos' I know it's natural colouring not like the colourful ones I saw in Thailand and they are too sweet for me.

Hi Phong Hong, my neighbours aren't lucky... they are my dummping ground when I have too much or controlling my diet...hehehe! But they are happy to receive them.. Kuihs taste good when you have more people eating it together.
