Try this soft, scrumptious and delicious dessert (often served at yumcha) -
known also as mochi to the Japanese.
Its a tweak on the normal green onde onde - when you've run out of pandan leaves.
This recipe is steamed and uses similar ingredients
as the deep-fried Jin Dou a birthday or Chinese New Year
snack covered with crunchy sesame seeds.
Gluten-free as well, but I reckon the GI must be pretty high.
Step 1: Ingredients for Onde Onde
220gm glutinous rice flour
250ml coconut milk
Cornstarch for rolling
Place flour, sugar and coconut milk in food processor. Add more water if dry.
Whizz until it appears like the soft, runny cake mixture like below.
Place in shallow dish and steam 20-30 minutes until cooked.
You may speed up the cooking process by microwaving the mixture in a deep bowl for 2 minutes on high.
Stir the the half cooked mixture thoroughly.
Zap again on high for 2-3 more minutes till your dough is opaque.
Cool slightly before filling with fillings.
Roll on chopping board dusted with cornflour, chop into 12 pieces.
This had great results for me, turned out extremely soft and chewy and didn't turn hard until
DAY 3 in the fridge.
