The traditional Malay ondeh ondeh pastry has been enjoying a revival recently. These green, pandan-flavoured rice balls coated in grated coconut are stuffed with gula melaka syrup that oozes out in a burst of sweetness when you bite into them. Yes, they’re messy, but these sticky treats are definitely worth the effort — and the calories.
If you fancy yourself an ondeh ondeh fan, these newfangled creations will be right up your alley. Not only are they super Instagrammable, they also present the well-loved kuih in a variety of textures and flavours, with clever twists. Let the ondeh ondeh dessert hunt begin!
