Prepare 300gr of glurinous rice fliur, add in 1 tsp of sugar and 1 tsp if salt. Slowly add in the hot water. You mau use your mixer or your hand
Form the dough into a log. If you want to color the dumplings, divide into 2-3 parts.. Each dyed a different color. The traditional version has 3 colors; white, green and pink
Always toast your peanuts before crushed them
Pinch some part to make a ball. Originally the ball is as big as quail's egg, but oh well ... mine is bigger :) make a well on the center and fill it with toated crushed peanuts
Fill the green one with black sesame seeds...
And the pink one with white sesame seeds. The original recipe only calls for crushed peanuts
There you have your homemade glutinous dumplings or Ronde in Indonesia or Mochi in Japan
Boil some water and add in the ronde
You know when they are cooked through when you see them floating
Our Ronde is ready .. and now we make the ginger syrup
First of all, roughly your 100gr of gingers
And bruised 4 stalks of lemongrass to release the aroma
Boil 5 cups of water and add in the bruised gingers, bruised lemongrass, 8 cloves and last but not least; 200 gr of sugar. Allow to a boil for 10 minutes to infuse the ginger. Set aside
Cut your bread into small cubes and put some in the bowl. Put the Ronde on top ten sprinkle with toasted crushed peanuts. Some people likes to have the bread, some people dont
Add in the ginger syrup. A lot if it!
There you go ... your homemade wedang ronde. A comfort and pleasant snacks at anytime. Enjoy!
