Circuit breaker has turned me into a diligent person lately.
And so I made ondeh-ondeh keledek (sweet potato). My first attempt by the way. I wanted to make two flavors – keledek and pandan but you know lah some Singaporeans unleashed their kiasi and kiasu attitude – they hoard almost everything they could.
I managed to get a pack of sweet potatoes (last few) and yesterday, with no skills, nothing, I ventured in making one. These are the things I used for my ondeh-ondeh:
2 sweet potatoes (peel off skin)
150g glutinous rice flour
1 tbsp wheat starch
6pcs mini gula melaka (palm sugar)
200g desiccated coconut (you can use kelapa parut too)
a pinch of salt
1. Peel the (sweet potatoes/keledek) skins off before boiling. Boil them till they are lembik (soft)
2. Steam the desiccated coconut for about 15-20min
3. While waiting for keledek and desiccated to settle down, cut gula melaka into small pieces or smash them
4. Squash/smash the keledek and mix well with the glutinous rice flour & wheat starch till it becomes a dough
5. Take a small amount of the dough and make a ball out of it. Press with your thumb into the ball till it becomes a little flatten and put in 1/2 teaspoon of gula melaka in it. Then, re-ball it again.
6. Boil them into a hot pot. Once float, cool them off before coating them with smooth desiccated coconut.
There! That’s my ondeh-ondeh keledek. Easy to prep and cook/make. Attached below is a video I made for fun so that everyone in my reading list can enjoy watching… even though I am still quite amateur in video editing.
Stay safe everyone!
