Buah Melaka


This is by far, the simplest 'kuih' to be made.
So, since it's too simple, I have trouble writing the recipe up.
I don't have the correct @ clear cut amount/weight of the ingredients.

Prepare the filling beforehand. The recipe here.
I just throw the glutinous rice flour in and mix it with enough water (plain water, mix with 1/2 tbsp of salt and s few drops of green food coloring*).
Mix it so that it will make a dough that doesn't stick to the hands.
Divide dough into slightly-smaller-than-lime-size balls.
Put about half teaspoon of filling in the middle, and roll into balls.
After finished with all the dough, boil water in a pot.
When the water is boiling, drop the balls into it.
It will cookedd when it float. Scoop the balls out with a perforatedd ladle, and tossed into a mix of grated coconut and a pinch of salt.
