Sweet Potato Ondeh Ondeh

45 minutes


20 pieces

Ondeh Ondeh, is a favourite childhood dessert to many people all around.

Melted Gula Melaka wrapped in the middle of chewy glutinous rice balls, which are then coated in shaved coconut… just a bite of it can instantly bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Previously we did a simple pandan ondeh ondeh, but in this version, we’ve added SWEET POTATOES which taste better in terms of taste and texture. Using both purple and orange potatoes make for a more colourful look too. If you’re are able to, get your hands on some good quality gula melaka from Malacca, as it makes a world of difference!
