Ondeh Ondeh

Ondeh-ondeh is a tiny ball-like item (one of the Nyonya kuehs in Asia) coated with white grated coconut. It is made with mashed sweet potato and pandan juice with a few drops of green food colouring. Chopped gula melaka (brown palm sugar) are wrapped inside each potato ball before they are boiled and rolled on a bed of steamed grated coconut. When you bite into these little balls, you can feel the juice of the sweet gula melaka oozing out. It is so sweet and tantalising you won’t stop at one.

Tks but i felt that its still not as good as those at Bengawan Solo. The gula melaka is very very tricky and not easy to master.. if u master it do let me know! :)
