  • Beat egg, sugar and coconut milk together with a beater until they are mixed together well and the sugar is completely dissolved, add salt to it and then add the ground rice and mix well.
  • The mixture should be like a pouring custard consistency.
  • Powder the seeds of the cardamom and add it to the mixture.
  • Grease a round cooker pan or similar to that which you can use in the cooker, pour the mixture, place a plate on top of it, keep it inside the cooker with water.
