Bases and cases made from bread: These are cut to the required shape from stale white sandwich loaves then fried in butter and stuck to the service dish using starch paste.
Preparation of bases and cases made from rice: Wash
Remove the rice and pound vigorously in a mortar, then place it in a cloth which has been well smeared with lard and knead it well. Place the mixture into moulds which have been greased with lard, and allow to cool.
When it is very cold the rice can be cut into the required shapes. They can then be kept for a long time by keeping in fresh water with the addition of alum, changing it frequently.
