Glutinous Rice flour Balls filled with Palm sugar / Green and Gold Onde-Onde


Green and Gold Onde-Onde recipe

I am back with another Malaysians favourite, especially during this fasting month with Glutinous Rice flour Balls filled with Palm sugar / Green and Gold Onde-Onde

Its called onde-onde (pronounce as on-day on-day) for the orange coloured glutinous ball and Buah Melaka for the green ones..(sorry ... I give up on how to type to get the correct pronunciation).

This is a re-visit recipe/ post that I did in my earlier days of blogging... in September 2009

Glutinous Rice flour Balls filled with Palm sugar recipe.

I didn’t like these chewy balls back then, during my growing up days. Many things that I didn’t like, then.
My mom loved these little balls, she only ever made the green ones. She would made it at least twice during the fasting month. .. and I would go ‘meh’ but of course mom would not whipped up another sweet dish just for me...you either eat it or nothing at all!!!
Left with basically no choice... I would eat at least 2. 

Green and Gold Onde-Onde recipe

Now...
I don’t dislike it as much, truth be told... I can eat more than 2, in fact... I think I ate at least 20!!!oops
Must be the hormones or lack of it, that re-develop my tastebuds for these chewy balls.

And for ‘Gold’ glutinous balls, I learned from my good friend, Janet. First time I tasted sweet potato glutinous balls was at her place, less chewy that ‘Green’ glutinous balls, made with pandan extract.

Thinking back...how could I NOT like these chewy balls.. burst with sweet palm sugar with every bite....

Hope you enjoy the video below :D

  2. Onde onde is one of my top favourite snack dessert though I find it can be labourious to do it. I prefer your Gold onde onde because it has sweet potato in it.
