(Prepare the sugary water next.)
Pour egg mixture into a cone (as for roti jala) and go round to form a net in a kuali.
Lift the net and use a lidi (any wooden skewer) to fold it while still hot.
Dip in sugary water and remove.
Drain excess sugary water.
Serve.

(b) To prepare sugary water:

Cook water, granulated sugar, daun pandan, and cloves in a pot.
