    Method

    1. Transfer the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.
    2. Add the wet ingredients.
    3. Gradually mix in the ingredients with a large mixing spoon using a combination of a cutting motion and pressing. The result should be a loose crumbly, yet sticky mix, a little like a biscuit or pastry dough.
    4. Using your hands bring the mixture together into a ball.
    5. The paste is now ready to use. It should be easily malleable but still hold its shape.
