  3. Roll the bean curd sheets over the lemongrass stems to form chicken drumstick shapes.
  4. Tighten the vegan drumsticks by winding thick cotton threads around them, keep them in a sealed container and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Remove the drumsticks from the refrigerator, steam for 30 minutes, cool and untie the threads.
