  3. Mix immediately with a pair of chopsticks or wooden spoon until dough is formed.
  4. When dough is cool enough to touch but still fairly hot, add in cooled leek mixture. Fold and knead until the surface is smooth. Add a little more water or glutinous rice flour if it is too dry or wet.
  5. Set aside to rest for about 5 minutes, covered in cling film or a damp cloth.
  6. Divide dough into 6 portions and roll them out to around 8mm thick.
