1 cup glutinous rice ( pre-soaked for 3-4 hours )
Water / coconut milk
Salt to taste
Stain rice. Mix salt, enough water / coconut milk
to cover up the rice, steamed till ¾ cooked.
Once rice is cooked, take it out from the
steamer & leave it to cool.
400 gm squids
( clean squid thoroughly, peel the skin, remove innards & pat dry )
When the rice has cooled down sufficiently,
wet hands slightly & compact rice into tightly
Proceed to stuff into the squid cavity with it
until ¾ full, using fingers to nudge carefully to
ensure that the lower ends are completely filled
without leaving any gaps.
Putting back the head, secure the opening with toothpicks.
Repeat until all the squids & glutinous rice is completely used up.
Set aside for later use.
