how do you make them and how many varieties are there. I had one yesterday that was made in a banana leaf, quite good with a chunk of pork in it, how about using chicken and more of a west indies flavor, maybe any suggestions on how to make it. It made me very satified and full all day but it seemed like it was 1,000,000 calories. HELP!! Any recipes will make me happy, thanks and variety would be great.
