Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 150g water or milk

Instructions

  1. Prepare warm water around 35 °C and melt the sugar in. And mix the yeast with the water. Mix well and set aside for around 5 minutes. If you do not want sugar, just skip it.
  2. Prepare the flour in a large bowl. Pour the water with yeast slowly to the bowl with flour and stir with a chop sticker.
  3. Then knead the flour into smooth and soft dough. At the very beginning, it might be a little bit sticky.
  4. Cover the bowl and let the dough rest for around 1 hour or until the paste ball doubles in size. This process can be done by mixer.
  5. When the dough is double in size, get paste ball out and punch the air out.
  6. Then roll the dough into a long log around 1 inch in diameter or any size you want.
  7. Scatter some flour on your board and cut the log to small sections you like. Brush some oil on the bottom of each bun.
  8. Add cool water in wok and put the buns in the steamer to steam. Continue to steam for around 15 minutes after the water boils.
