This is a fun and easy Malaysia traditional cake that children can participate in the making at the kitchen. In Malaysia it is known as 'Kuih Bom Keledek' which literally translate as Sweet potatoes Bomb Cake. It is quick to prepare about 45 minutes (psst...my first time). Maybe less for a pro. I got the recipe from CikManggis. CikManggis said not to worry as it won't explode. I am obsess about sweet potatoes this week since we harvested some last weekend. In this cold winter weather,working in the kitchen looks more inviting than the garden at the moment. This cooking made enjoyable teatime of hot bombs and hot tea in this cold middle of winter season. Lets make some bomb.Ingredients:
80 gram of mashed sweet potatoes (boiled)
120 gram glutinous rice flour
20 gram flour
35 gram castor sugar
a pinch of salt
grated coconut (you can also use red bean paste/adzuki bean paste)
Mix all the ingredient above except for the sesame seeds and grated coconut. Knead the dough until all of the ingredients well incorporated. Make a round bomb ball about the size of a ping pong ball.
Heat some cooking oil for deep-frying.
Meanwhile, make a hole and fill the bomb with grated coconut.
Make it a bomb shape again with the grated coconut safely in the middle of the bomb.
Roll the bomb on sesame seeds to cover the whole bomb with it.
Fry the ball until golden brown.
CikManggis got 12 bombs and I got 14 bombs.
How many bombs did you got?
