Pastry Paste:
  1. Heat up the pan, pour in the coconut oil. When the oil is hot, turn off the fire, add in the cake flour and fry it until cooked.
  2. Put the flour on the plate. After being heated, the flour forms some small balls.

  11. Steam them and add sugar and oil, until it becomes like paste.
  12. Knead it until it’s really smooth.
  13. If it is too dry, jus add some water, and knead again.
  14. The sweet mung bean filling is ready to be used.
  15. Cover it with a piece of wet cloth to keep it moist.
When everything is ready:
  1. Take 1 portion of pastry paste and wrap it with the pastry shell.
  2. Tight the opening with your thumb and index finger. Wrap the pastry tightly and then seal the edge of the pastry shell tightly.
  3. Wrap the pastry paste evenly otherwise it may seep out when we roll the pastry later and it won’t taste good.
  4. When the pastry paste has been wrapped in the pastry shell, roll it into a long strip. Place the rolling pin in the middle and push upwards, not too hard, and then roll downwards. Then fold it up.
  5. Let it irregular edge face up and roll it once more. Then it will create many layers and the pastry will be aromatic and tasty after baking.
  6. Set it aside to let it rise.
  7. Cover it with a wet gauze cloth to keep it form losing moisture.
  8. To wrap the filling, start with the first pastry shell that have been prepared.
