Home / Recipes / Sweet Potatoes Klepons
Klepons is an Indonesian street food, a boiled rice cake, stuffed with palm sugar mixture and rolled in grated coconut. My recipe is a fusion of klepon and ranga alur pithe. Ranga Alur pithe is a Bengali sweet made with sweet potatoes, rice flour, jaggery and coconut and coated with sugar syrup. Here in this recipe, the cooking technique is that of the traditional klepon ( the balls are cooked in boiling water and then coated with grated coconut) but the filling mixture and dough is that of ranga alur pithe(filling made from sweet condensed milk , coconut, jaggery and sugar and the dough made from flour and mashed potatoes ). Though traditionally rice flour is used for making these delicacies, I have used all purpose flour or maida to make the sweet potatoes klepons since it turned out much easier and efficient to work with. Hope you enjoy it too.
