    here they call the green colour balls as Onde-onde.... that's why I mentioned that name. sorry if It's wrong; )

    that is not malaysia's onde-onde but KLEPON. KLEPON is traditional food from j
    indonesia especially in java island. and then ONDE-ONDE,it from indonesia too, especially from mojokerto city (east java). ONDE-ONDE is a traditional food from mojokerto city. so you cant give name for that food with malaysian onde-onde. why dont you named spageti with malaysian noodle too?you steal the tradition food of indonesia by change the name of food.
