    glutinous rice flour

  • 65


    lukewarm coconut milk

  • pinch of salt

  • Filling

  • 250


    Coconut blossom sugar

  • Coconut coating

  • Desiccated coconut

  • 1-2 pandan leaves knotted

  • 8

  1. Start with the dough, choose your respective color (s) and separate into the necessary number of mixing bowls required. Each color needs a separate bowl.
  2. Mix all the dough ingredients in along with the natural coloring ‘dye’.
  3. Knead the dough till it feels like a play dough consistency.

4. Once you’re done and made the dough, take 2 tbs size of the  dough and roll it into a round ball with your palms.

5. Now flatten this ball and fill it in with the middle of this flatten round dough with 1-2 tsp of coconut blossom sugar.

6. Seal this ball like how you initially rolled it out with your palms,  making sure that no sugar comes out. 

7. Boil water in a pot, and once the water is hot and bubbling, drop these tiny balls into the water. It will sink, but you will  know when it’s ready when they come up the surface and start  floating. This will take approximately 3-5 minutes. 

8. For the coconut coating, mix all ingredients and put it in the  microwave for 1 minute, the coconut should be stickier. 

9. Once your balls have finished boiling, take them out of the water and roll them into the coconut coating. Now you are  ready to serve!
