  where it meets the edge of the brad to form a smooth dome.

  press on a single coriander leaf.
       Deep-fry, topping side down, in 350 F oil until the topping is
  golden, about 4 minutes.

  cooled plum sauce.
       ** This plum sauce can be made from pureed soft plums simmered
  with sugar, rice vinegar and plum wine to taste.
