Pumpkin Ondeh-Ondeh

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Ondeh-ondeh is one of the traditional 'kuih' available in Malaysia. I remembered when I was young, there's a nearby 'pasar' around my parents' shop. Since we were in the east coast region where majority of the population in the area were Malays, there were a lot of different varieties of 'kuih-muih' available. One of the the 'kuih-muih' that we always eat was Ondeh-ondeh. Back then, the Ondeh-ondeh we normally saw was green in colour infused with pandan flavour. So for the one that I made today was slightly different where it was made from pumpkin which gives out an orangey colour Ondeh-ondeh.


300g grated coconut
1/2 tsp salt
30g tapioca flour
200ml water
400g steamed mashed pumpkin
350g glutinous rice flour
200g gula Melaka, chopped

  1. Mix 1/2 tsp salt with grated coconut and steam for 5 minutes. Let it cool and set aside.
  2. Mix tapioca flour and water together. Cook over medium heat until it becomes thick paste.
  3. Remove from heat and let it cool in a mixing bowl.
  4. Add in mashed steamed pumpkin, glutinous rice flour and salt. Knead to form soft dough.
  5. Roll each one into a 20g ball.
  6. Bring some water to boil in a pot.
  7. Flatten the dough ball and put in a bit of gula Melaka in the centre.
  8. Pinch to seal and then roll again into a ball shape. Repeat the steps till the dough finish.
  9. Drop balls into boiling water until they float to the surface. This will take around 2 minutes.
  10. Remove the balls from water when they are floating. Drained and transfer cooked balls to the steamed grated coconut.
  11. Roll each ball in the grated coconut.
  12. Serve warm or cooled.
