Here the food is very close to finishing but will need a bit more of carefulness.
The gas is set at this point in time, the pot is put on the gas with a certain level of water in the pot, allow the water to get hot then begin to put the mixture into the hot water.

You reduce the heat and allow the heat to be low to avoid burning the food. You use your hand to pick the mixture into the hot water gently and as you put the mixture, you add the ingredients to it . ( Periwinkle, dry fish, cray fish, meat, Kanda, pepper, Maggi, salt and red oil)
