How to make the Dough

1) Mix the glutinous rice flour, salt, and coconut milk until it become a soft smooth dough. 
    (Add the coconut milk bit by bit). 
2) Separate the dough to about 20-25 small balls (it is up to you for the size of the dough, no 
    special size for this..I prefer the medium size..not to big!)
3) Take one of the balls and flatten it to put in the filling, about 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoon for each 
4) Take the banana leave 
5) Dip in the oil (as per the above pic)
6) Put the ball in the banana leave and wrap it neatly wither a cone shape or the normal 
7) Repeat the same steps for others.
8) Steam for about 15 to 20 minutes in a medium boiling water.
9) Remove from steamer and allow it to cool before serving. 

Note : the steamer should be in medium heat.
