  1. Soak the snails in clear water for 48 hrs (so that they cleanse themselves). Change the water every 24 hours.
  2. Prepare the snails: Smack the pointed end of the snail with a spoon so that the flavors of the spices goes inside.
  3. Put all the ingredient together in a heavy lid <aluminium>dish /pressure cooker and cook for about 45 minutes to 1 hr.

Serve with Rice or Rice Beer. Bon appetit!
