Sweet filled string hoppers

1 cup rice flour or steamed flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup boiling water

With a wooden stick mix flour and salt quickly using boiling water to make a dough. Add water a little at a time about 1/2 cup. While the dough is warm put into the string hopper mould and make a string hoppers in a circular motion.

If you want plain steamed string hoppers to serve as a main dish with sweet or savoury curries steam for about 2 to 3 minutes till the colour changes.

For the sweet filled string hoppers fill a tsp of sweet coconut filling and cover lightly without pressing too much. In a steamer, steam for about 3 to 4 minutes. When it is cooked the flour will change colour and will come out easy, don't steam it for a long time.
