On my return from Indonesia, I brought Gloutious Rice Flour. I haven’t find it here, or perhaps it is in the market but I haven’t found the french term for this kind of flour. I have no special idea what I would like to prepare with it, until one day I had the opportunity to prepare something.
We invited some friends to have lunch with us and I would like to show them Indonesian food, including Indonesian dessert. I started to dig up into my recipes collections and I found this klepon recipes in Femina Magazine. I decided to prepare this cake not only because the cake is delicious and attractive but also because it is so easy to prepare.
Here is the recipes!
- Cake colouring (choose your fave colour)
- 50 gr of brown palm sugar (sliced)
- Boiling water
- 115 gr of gloutious rice flour
- 60 gr of potatoes (one medium size potato)
- 1 teasp of salt
- 100 gr of coconut gratin (steamed)
How to prepare:
- Boil or steam the potatoes. Peel the skin then smash them until smooth.
- Mix the flour with the potatoes and 1/2 tea sp of salt. Devide the dough into two or depends on how many colours do you want to create.
Add the colouring in the dough. Add water little by little while you mix it until the dough is compact and not sticky (use your hand for better result)
- Take one table spoon of the dough, flat it then put some sliced palm sugar. Cover the palm sugar with the dough then roll it until it become a marble. Do it until you finish all the dough.
- Boil water in a medium boiler, meanwhile steam the coconut gratin by adding 1/2 tea sp of salt.
- Put in the marbles in to the boiling water. When the marbles float, pick them up and drain. Then rolled them in the steam coconut gratin.
- It’s ready!
Can be served warm or cold.
Serving for 4 – 5 persons (24 marbles)
