Wash glutinuous rice and soak overnight with 1 tsp lime paste (airkapur).
Then toast and steam with coconut milk, knotted screwpine leaves and salt for 30 minutes or until the milk evaporates. Once cooked take a fork and turn anti-clock wise and loosen the rice. Leave it to cool.
Meanwhile, mix brown sugar and water and cook in a pan.
For those who are using gula merah sieve it first.
Leave the sugar syrup to boil at least 5 minutes, lower the flame and mix in the glutinuous rice and mix it throughly. Stir
constantly for 3 minutes and close the flame. Pour it into a cake pan and leave it to cool before serving.
