I ended up getting more sweet potatoes and grated coconut, so I increased the ingredients in the recipe to yield more onde-onde :)
400g steamed sweet potato
400g glutinous flour
6 tbsp water or more (I didn't measure how much water I used, just eyeball it, add a little at a time to form a dough)
1 tsp canola oil
chopped pieces of gula melaka (or call palm sugar)
freshly grated coconut (add salt)
1 tsp pandan essence
1) Steam the sweet potato until soft.
2) Mash the sweet potato in a bowl, add in the glutinous flour slowly, water, oil & pandan essence.
3) Knead till a dough is formed. You can add more water if the dough is dry or add more flour if the dough is wet and sticky.
4) Chop gula melaka into bite size pieces. (avoid wet)
5) Divide dough into 20g each and wrap in the gula melaka. (I just picked up a small pc of dough to create a ball which is bite sized then fill in chopped gula melaka)
6) Put the wrapped balls into a big pot of boiling water.
7) Fish them out when the ball floats (once it's cooked, it'll automatically float up!)
8) Toss them on to a plate filled with grated coconut and coat all around the balls.
9) Serve and eat!

Was flipping through my home economics 'bible' one day and saw a onde-onde recipe, read through the ingredient list and the steps, it looked easy to me, I told myself I must try it one day! So once I got hold of the ingredients, another friend of mine, Joanne, also made onde-onde, and her recipe was very similar to the one in my home econs bible :) Will share this with you! Thanks Joanne :)
