1
Steam 1 tbsp of poppy-seed in boiling water for 15-20 mins. Pour the boiling water off, and then drain the poppy-seeds on the paper napkin.

6
Rinse and pour the boiling water over the remaining poppy-seed for 15-20 mins. Pour off the boiling water, drain the poppy-seed on napkin, grind the poppy-seed with hands or in coffee-mill, and slowly add water until it reminds of liquid sour cream.
