By Jean Ngwarraye Long.

The seeds are collected under a tree by laying a tarp on the ground and hitti􏰂ng the tree conti􏰁nuously unti􏰁l most of the seeds have fallen. Once the seeds are collected they are then ground with a mortar and grinding stone. 

A number of these grinding stones have been in families for genera􏰁ons. Once seeds are ground, water is added and mixed unti􏰁l a damper-like substance is formed, then placed under coals until􏰁 cooked.
