Onde - Onde Labu
Pumpkin Balls with Sweet Stuffing in Shredded Coconut
I had pandan and sweet potato onde-onde. This time, I'm using pumpkin.
Great as a teatime snack.
For this recipe , I get abt 20.
abt 350g pumpkin, boiled, drained and mashed
200g glutinous rice flour
50g tapioca flour
1 tbsp ghee
1 block of gula melaka/palm sugar - slivered
abt 2 cups of grated coconut (without skin)
Steam the coconut with a pandan leaf for a few minutes. Add abt a tsp of salt and mix evenly.
Mix pumpkin flesh, both flour and ghee and work into a nice smooth dough. Add water if it's too dry or add more flour if it's too wet. Make a small ball, thumb a hole in the centre, insert some slivered palm sugar, pinch dough back together and roll back into a ball.
In a pot of boiling water with a knotted pandan leaf, slide the balls and boil them. They will float once they're cooked.
Drain out excess water and immediately dump into the steamed coconut. Roll until it's fully coated. Serve.
