Hi Stella, Your blog looks good! For this recipe you are steaming the flour. Why that? I know people sieve the flour after they sieve it. Why do they do that?
Have a great day. Jenny

Dear Jenny
Very important questions you asked me.
Remove any lumps that present in the flour that's caused by moisture.
Remove impurities is greatly reduced.
[ Difficult to squeeze string hopper mould]
Sieve the flour to make sure there are no granules[very easy to squeeze]
