    • Do the Process as soon as they cool up, once the rice flour dough gets cool, not at all possible to make into shapes..
    • If the stuffing goes too watery, then add some more coconut to make a thick mass.. 
    • While folding the leaf, carefully do, without tearing them
    • open the leaves once they cool down, Ada might break while you open in hot .. once they cooled they can be easily slip out from the leaves..
