It’s time to go traditional people! These little green balls of pure fun is a traditional Nyonya kuih (cake) called ondeh-ondeh. It is basically balls of pandan flavored glutinous rice flour filled with melted palm sugar (gula melaka) rolled in grated coconut. The best way to enjoy it is to pop the entire ball into your mouth and enjoy the explosion of sugar as you savor the pandan flavor.

There are two variations of this kuih. I made the simpler glutinous flour balls while the other variety is a mixture of both glutinous flour and sweet potato. Both are just as good.
