I first saw onde onde kosong on Shirley’s blog. Kosong? Empty? Well, my favourite thing about onde onde is the palm sugar filling that oozes out when I bite into it. But then again, it very tedious to make. If you want the filling to ooze, you have to chop the sugar really fine and the wrapping process is so so difficult. If you chop it coarsely, chances are it won’t finish melting by the end of the cooking process. So I guess incorporating sugar directly in the dough could be a good idea.
I still have lots of black glutinous rice flour, a gift from AlongRoz of HomeKreation. I have wanted to try making this for more than a year but haven’t been putting my hands onto it. Finally I made it when I got some extra coconut from making Chicken Rendang and of course, banana leaves. How to take pics of this without the green leafy container that is so so onde-onde-ey.
First attempt with a dry cookie feel, it is cooked, but dry
Finally, I used more water and poured in hot syrup to half cook it, and zapped it to cook it further. The batter firmed up to a rollable stage and finally, I got the texture I was looking for. With 4 attempts, I finally got it. Firm, sticky, soft and chewy, even when cooled down to room temperature for 3 hours, and the BGR flour is not gritty when made into kuih, just don't bake cakes with it.
