This is a simple bun making as all mama made at home,sometimes I even don’t use any measurement…
For the dough :
1: Three glasses or bowls of all purpose flour
2: 1 1/2 to 2 same size bowl of warm water
3: 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
4: 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
5: 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
6: 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt
In a regular mixing bowl mix all dough ingredients except oil and
knead by hand until smooth, then add oil at last ,knead again…
Till a smooth dough ball is formed,cover with a damp cloth and
let it rest for 30 mins…while the dough is resting, it’s time for
1: 2 small onions finely chopped
2: 1 bowl of corn beef dash of black pepper
Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat, stir -fry onion and corn beef for 2-3 mins, add black pepper, dish up and set aside
After the dough has rested 30 mins, divide in eveness parts…
add some filling and pleat the buns…roll into a round shape ,
thicker in the center,thinner around the edges ….
stuff and shape, then rest 10-15 mins more.
Place each bun on a parchment square,and steam 15 mins
(best steam with bamboo steamer..and start with cold water)
after 15 mins, turn off the stove..slightly open the lid,rest 10 mins more..
