wow.. I like Ondeh Ondeh very much! This recipe very useful for me. My mum-in-law teach me before but I forgot already. Thanks for sharing. Can I use pandan leave to make it become green color?

Wah! So Yummy


Thanks for sharing a lovely recipe. May I ask, if I wish to make for a party, how early or how long can I keep them before actual party day?

Hi Kitchen Corner,

Use yellow sweet potato instead and add 1 to 2tsp of pandan juice into the dough.

Hi Family First,

You can keep them for half a day it ok. Remember to steam the coconut. Try not to keep them in airtight container as the coconut will turn sour easily.

You can also make the glutinous balls in advance, cover and store in the fridge. An hour or two before the party start then you cook it, roll them in the grated coconut and serve hot. This will be better.

I feel very curious about 1 thing. May I know why must put tapioca flour? I saw other blog, most of them didnt put tapioca flour just glutinous flour alone.

I feel very curious about 1 thing. May I know why must put tapioca flour? to make it more springy? I saw some of the recipe that just put glutinuous flour alone.

Hi K@ren@ Ho,

Tapioca flour is to make the skin soft and more chewy. You can replace it with glutinous rice flour.

Hi Happy Flour

Aside from the staple ingredient of the glutinous rice flour, there was the 80g tapioca flour added.
May I know if I use 80g rice flour instead of tapioca flour, wud it be alright? Which of the flour - tapioca or rice flour wud give a better texture and stay soft longer?

Thank you.

Hi Priscilla Poh,

If you don't have tapioca flour just replace it with glutinous rice flour.
