Method {Kindly watch my video}

To serve golden cups. Fill cups with filling and garnish with coriander leaves and a thin julienne of chili.
If you do not plan to eat right away it is better to wait before filling the cups, to avoid the lost of crispness.
Golden cups if left over must be kept in air tight container to keep them crispy.

Any trouble please let me know.. just be careful with the hot oil. Luksana
