1) First the mold is filled with finely pounded flour. Then a portion of the filling is taken out to make space for the filling.
2) The filling can be of  grated coconut or ground peanuts or a combination of both. The grated coconut is  fried on low heat over several hours and sweetened with gula Melaka (palm sugar).
3) Another layer of rice flour is added to seal the filling and the cake tipped over onto a muslin cloth placed on the steamer. 
4) The cakes take on the flower-like shape of the mold. Placed on a cut Pandanus leaf before serving, they acquire a sweet flavor and scent. The flour is slightly sweetened so the cakes taste just as good, even without feeling too.
