If you’re using banana leaf to roll the squid cake, then secure both ends with toothpick. Soak the banana leaf in water for about 30 mins to make it more pliable for rolling.

Cover the steamer with lid when steaming. Turn off heat after 30 mins or longer if more rolls are steamed. Allow to cool for 15 mins. Be careful of hot steam which can scald.  Remove aluminium foil and wrap. Slice the squid cake.

You may want to fry the squid cake before serving, or serve in steamed version with dipping sauce.
