  6. In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk and salt until just warm. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  7. Add the water and a tinge of violet colouring.
  8. Place the glutinous rice flour and cornflour in a mixing bowl. Add the mashed taro and cooled coconut milk mixture. Knead into a soft dough.
  9. Form dough into small balls. Pushing with a finger, make a well in the centre of each ball of dough and place a little filling in it. Wrap the dough around the filling to seal it completely. Roll back into a ball.
