It’s sure been a long time since I last made a batch of Ondeh Ondeh. I believe my last attempt was in November 2011 and at that time, I used purple sweet potato and it was really pretty.
The craving started when I went to Maxwell Road Market and was told that they were not selling Oneh Oneh on that day.
Thus when I was at my favourite wet market, I decided to get a bag of freshly grated coconut to make some for myself. I couldn't find purple sweet potato so I have no choice but to use the normal variety.
I concluded that using freshly grated coconut will solved my choking problem. Yes, those nonya kueh that I get from store always make me choked and that is why I hated it. It just got lodged in my throat and refused to glide down.
My hubby said I am weird but I know there are people who had the same experiment with me and that include my son.
Now I can truly enjoy my ondeh ondeh 100%. Yea
Nevertheless, if you have the same problem as me, and still love Nonya Kueh, get freshly grated coconut. It will definitely solved the issue.
Verdict: Very good texture and doesn't have stick in the mouth feel.
