Dodol is a sweet candy made from glutinous rice flour palm sugar and coconut milk.
So far I'd tasted 2 types of dodol, gula melaka dodol and durian dodol. You can find these dodol mostly during Hari Raya or Chinese New Year. But, in Melaka you can find these dodol in anytime.
Erm....now you can also find them in your own kitchen.......lol!!. Let's make dodol!!!!
It is not difficult to make dodol, all you need it time......howlong???...it really depend on you. If you like it chewy and dense, stir it constantly for about 11/2 to 2 hours.
In the making dodol,these are important things need to take notes :
1) Stir constantly, or the dodol will easily get burnt and destroy the texture and taste.
2) Use LOW Fire.
3) For a better taste, use Gula Melaka, not brown or dark brown sugar.
4) If you keep the dodol into a container, make sure the dodol is completely cool, before you lid on.
I used 11/2 to 2 hours making this dodol., because I like chewy and dense dodol.
400-500gm Gula Melaka, cut into pieces
50 - 100 ml water
150 ml water
500 glutinous rice flour
900 ml coconut milk...about 4 coconut
200 gm sugar
Cook (A) until all the Gula Melaka dissolve, strain and keep a side for later use.
Mix ingredients (B), strain and pour it into a wok.
Cook over LOW heat, and stir constantly, until it becomes slightly thick.
Add in Gula Melaka and keep stirring.
Add in coarse sugar, and stir.
Keep stirring until dodol becomes really thick , heavy and separating from the walls of the wok.
Pour it out into a heat safe dish, container .
Allow it to completely cooled.
Cut it into strip, square or diamond shape and serve.
Chop, chop chop Gula Melaka
Strain and keep a side.
Cook in a wok until thick.
Begin to thick.
Add in Gula Melaka, keep stiring.
See, it is very hard for it to come together, at this point add coarse sugar.
And ta-da, after adding coarse sugar, it become smooth and shiny,,,,yay!! If you like thin and runny dodol, you can dish up at this stage.
