Pumpkin Ondeh Ondeh

63 comments


After making Abok Abok Sago, I still have some white grated coconut left. Since I do not want to waste them, I also made a small portion of Ondeh Ondeh with pumpkin on the same day. The original Ondeh Ondeh is actually green in colour which made with pandan juice. This is also one of my childhood favourite sweet snacks (not sure they are from the Malay or Peranakan origin). I just love to pop the whole Ondeh Ondeh into my mouth and get the explosive feel of melted gula melaka .... mmm... so yummy!! 




Pumpkin Ondeh Ondeh

Ingredients: makes 16
       160g    Glutinous rice flour
       10g      Tapioca flour
       120g    Pumpkin
       80-100g Pandan water  (boil 300g water with 2 pieces pandan leaves)
       100g    Gula melaka (palm sugar) ~ diced
       150g    White grated coconut


 
 

      Method:
  • Steam white grated coconut with 1/8tsp salt for 10 minutes.
  • Cut pumpkin in wedges. Steam pumpkin for 10 minutes or till soft and mash with a fork.
  • In a large bowl mix glutinous rice flour, tapioca flour and mashed pumpkin together, slowly add 80g pandan water into it and knead to a smooth dough. If dough is too dry add a little more pandan water into it or little more flour if it is too wet.
  • Pinch dough into small ball (about 10g), slightly press flat and fill with gula melaka and roll into smooth ball again. 
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and drop the little dough balls into it. 
  • When they float to the surface and let it boil for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove them with a slotted spoon and shake off excess water.
  • Roll the cooked glutinous balls over the white grated coconut.
  • I like to serve them warm.

  4. hi,

    Ive cooked ondeh-ondeh before but the gula melaka inside have not fully melted by the time the balls floated to the surface. When I bite into the ondeh-ondeh, there were still bits n small chunks of gula melaka. Is there any way I can rectify this? Thanks!:)

    Hanushi, This is really easy to make, have a try.
    You can try at some stationery shop. Actually you can use any kind of boxes you have. Just wrap the box with brown paper and use scotch to tape it.

  42. 加了木薯粉的会有什么差别?

    因为我手头上的两个食谱都只放糯米粉而已。



    这个kuih也是我喜欢的。

    Sean, 加了木薯粉感觉会比较Q,皮不会软软的。

    Esther, 呵呵。。。好像大家都是这样吃法 ):

  47. Thank you, Ann for your advice. :)

  48. This is an ingenious idea, pumpkin ondeh2, the first time I am hearing this. The color is so pretty and bright, hmm the thought of the gula melaka bursting into the mouth is heavenly :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ann, this is absolutely brilliant. I had tried substituting the sweet potato in Ang Ku Kueh with pumpkin before so I can imagine that this would work beautifully.

    ReplyDelete
  50. @Shirley @ Kokken69
    Hi Shirley, So I love to use sweet potato with Ang Ku Kueh before, soft and sweet and this pumpkin works well too.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ann, I did this today...it was yummy, the skin was soft and chewy. I replaced pumpkin with sweet potato as I did not have any pumpkin. However, my rolled balls burst even before I put them into the boiling water. They didn't burst when I was rolling them but they burst a short while later after they were put down onto a plate. Why is this so? Overall, it was yummy and my husband loved it. Thanks!

    1. Ai Li, I think you need to add a little more water as sweet potato is not as wet as pumpkin and has higher fiber. Next time when you make this again, cover the uncooked balls with a cling wrap.

  52. Thank you for coming to my rescue again...! Appreciate it!

    1. Ann, do I increase the tapioca flour or rice flour if I want it to be more chewy? How much to increase without affecting the overall taste? Thanks, Ann!

    2. Ai Li, I don't know leh... because I only used this measurement. sorry :)

    3. Ann, no worries, its ok. Thanks!
