K e l e p o n

I still have some leftovers of grated coconut from making PUTRI AYU the other day, and I do not like wasting :P so I decided to make some kelepon today for the boys to snack on after school.
I hope they'll like it ^__^

Kelepon is a traditional Indonesian snack made from glutenous rice flour filled with palm/arenga sugar, boil it, then rolled it into steamed grated coconut. It's really simple to make, I think almost every Indonesian know how.
Normally if the recipe calls from pandan flavor, I always use instant pandan paste, but this time I have canned pandan extracts handy, so I use that instead. And I could not be more happier with the result! I love love love the final color. The green is more natural and I love it!! ..... it really reminds me of home!!
Next time I'll use canned pandan extracts if I can, since I know in some recipes you have to stick with pandan paste.


200 ml pandan extract water (about 1/2 can)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp lime stone paste water (diluted a small amount of lime stone paste with 1 tsp lukewarm water)

250 gr glutenous rice flour
100 gr palm sugar/arenga sugar --> shredded (do not substitute with brown sugar)
250 gr grated coconut
1/2 tsp salt
Pandanus leaves (optional)


Mixed grated coconut with 1/2 of salt and pandanus leaves, then steam it until done, or you can put it in a microwave, covered and set on high for 1 minute. Set aside

In the mean time, heat the pandan extracts until warm (do not boil it), add 1/2 of salt and 1 tsp of lime stone paste. Mix it well, then add the glutinous rice flour into it. Use your hand mix it well and knead it until ready to be shaped.

Take a small amount of dough, flatten it, then put a little of palm sugar in the center.

Using your hand, shape the dough into like a small balls, about 2 cm of diameter.

Then boil it in a hot boiling water until done, about 5 minutes.

When it's done, roll the balls into prepared grated coconut.

Ready to serve ^__^

Enjoy it!!

This is the same as our Ondeh Ondeh here but no lime stone paste used. ;) Powered by Blogger.
