2. Mix pork, shallots, preserved vegetable and cabbage.
3. Heat remaining lard or oil and fry meat/vegetable mixture for two minutes. Remove from heat and add thick soy, mix well, and allow to cool.
3. Roll rice dough to less than quarter-inch thick and cut circles of it with a large glass, then roll each circle a little thinner.
Put one dough circle on a leaf, put about one-tenth of the meat mixture on it and wet the edges of the dough and cover the meat shaping it like a bun, and seal. Then fold and tie the leaf completely covering the bun. Tie the leaf securely but not too tightly around the bun.
