  1. Mix all the filling ingredients by hands in a bowl. Your body temperature works perfect for mixing the solid coconut oil with the other ingredients.
  2. Put the mixed filling into fridge.
  3. Melt the rest of coconut oil in a pan in low heat, remove the pan from heat and cool the coconut oil down to room temperature.
  4. Put all the ingredients for the dough and the melt coconut oil into a large bowl and whisk them into a smooth liquidised mixture without any lumps.
  5. Pour the mixture into a pan container and steam in high heat for 15 minutes.
  6. Check it with a fork. The cooked mixture will turn into firm sticky dough.
  7. Take out the pan container, cover it with lid and cool the dough to room temperature.
  8. Wear a pair of disposable kitchen gloves; take a piece of half-egg-size dough by hands.
  9. Palm the small dough into round pad; put a tablespoon of the filling in the middle of the pad and shape it into a rice ball.
