Ondeh Ondeh is a Peranakan dessert. It is easy to prepare and has valuable appetizing nutrients.
The main ingredient of Ondeh Ondeh is sweet potato. Sweet Potato is a complex carbohydrate food source and has a low glycemic index, which means it will give you energy for a longer period of time. It is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), and a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, iron, copper and dietary fiber. In other words, the sweet potato is ideal for health-conscious food consumer, and though sweet and delicious it is not fattening.
Being a health conscious person myself, I would like to share this recipe with you. It is a real natural food with nothing artificial in it. I have modified it to have more sweet potato and using raw sugar. There is no need to measure anything, this is a lazy man?s recipe. Try it ? I am sure you will like it.
-1 kg sweet potatoes (do not buy the very soft type of sweet potato, check with the seller if you are not sure what this means)
– Pandan juice (optional)
– Tapioca flour
– A small packet of raw sugar.
– Half fruit of grated coconut (deskin)
? add a quarter teaspoon of salt and mix with coconut
– Wash and brush sweet potatoes thoroughly and boil in water skin-in.
– When a chopstick can poke through the sweet potatoes it means it?s cooked, take it out and leave it on a plate to cool.
– Peel the skin off and mash it.
Add the tapioca flour spoon by spoon and knead it together with the mashed sweet potatoes till it is firm as a lump of dough ? soft enough for your finger to poke through not breaking it apart and not too hard that your finger will spring back.
If you are using pandan juice, you can add it in together as you knead all ingredients together, maximum 2 tablespoon. Pandan juice is optional as it tastes just as good without.
Pinch a piece out from the dough and roll into a ball. Continue this for the rest of the dough.
Pick up a ball and dip your thumb in the centre to form a well.
Place half a teaspoon of raw sugar in the well, close the opening and roll into a ball again.
Continue this with the rest of the balls.
Put a pot of water to boil. When it is boiling drop the ondeh ondeh balls into the pot.
When it starts to float up use a tea strainer to pick it up. Dab strainer over dry cloth and roll the ondeh ondeh in grated coconut.
Bravo? you?ve got yourself some dessert now. Serve it while it?s warm.
