1. It is better not to use cold water for glutinous rice dough, because glutinous rice balls made with cold water are not flexible and easy to crack; while glutinous rice balls made with boiled water are too sticky, so warm water is better;
2. Because different glutinous rice flour has different water absorption, it is recommended to add some water first and leave a little water to adjust as appropriate;
3. The material for coloring cat's paws can be used according to your own preferences, or you can change other colors to make more lovely glutinous rice balls;
4. Put the plastic wrap on the operation board during the production process, so that the cat's paw can be easily picked up to prevent adhesion to the operation board;
5. You can also add sugar or wrap fillings to the glutinous rice dough to increase the flavor.
