Klepon, also known as Onde-onde, is a traditional Indonesian sweet snack made from glutinous rice flour dough filled with palm sugar and coated with grated coconut. The dough is usually colored green using pandan leaves juice, which also gives it a fragrant aroma.
To make Klepon, the dough is formed into small balls and then filled with the palm sugar. The balls are then boiled until they float to the surface, indicating they are cooked. They are then removed from the water and rolled in the grated coconut to coat the outside. The result is a chewy, sweet, and slightly nutty snack with a liquid palm sugar center.
Klepon is a popular snack in Indonesia and is often served during special occasions or celebrations, such as weddings or religious festivals. It is also commonly found in traditional markets or sold by street vendors. The dish is best enjoyed fresh and warm, with the coconut providing a refreshing contrast to the sweet filling.
