Buah Melaka or Onde-Onde



Nice Malay delicacy....
Mr H Jr and Miss E requested for this kuih ... a nice chewy texture with sweet palm sugar that 'burst' in your mouth.... but you may be the unlucky one.... and happened to pick up my 'no palm sugar filling' aka my BOMB...

I usually throw in 1 or 2 without the palm sugar... and see who was unlucky that day!!

  • 250g of glutinous flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • 8 pieces daun pandan or screwpine leaves
  • dessicated coconut mix with a pinch of salt
  • palm sugar - cut into small cubes
In a blender, blend the daun pandan with water.... squeeze the pandan juice. Pour the juice into a mixing bowl of glutinous flour. Mix well... may have to add water so that the dough is pliable and not to dry. If the dough is a bit dry, the buah melaka will turn out hard... and if too soft, it may not hold the sugar inside....tricky...but you'll get there by the first few try....

Fill up the saucepan with water half full... Bring to boil....

Roll the dough into a 'ball' slightly bigger than a marble, flatten and place the palm sugar and roll again into a ball.... and make sure that the sugar is well concealed...

Gently place the ball into the hot boiling water.... The buah melaka will float up once it is cooked...fish it out and place it in the dessicated coconut mix. Roll....

Note: Moisten dessicated coconut with a little bit of hot water ...if you can't find the freshly grated coconut

yum......
