I came to know from my schoolmate, BT that her mother is good at making homemade steamed buns (pao), be it with char-siew (barbecue pork), lotus paste or sweet potato stuffing. Her 4-years old son likes them a lot. When I expressed my eagerness to learn from her mother, she had immediately obliged to my request and arranged a bun making session for me with her mom when I was back home in Penang recently.
On that day, her mother demonstrated to me how to make the steamed char siew and sweet potato buns. Both buns were made from the same dough. I only documented the latter for sharing as I found that it is easier to learn for novice like me. As it turned out, the buns were very soft and fluffy, and best eaten when they were just fresh out from the steamer.
Here, I like to express my special thank to BT for this special arrangement and also my deep appreciation to her mother for letting me learn her secret steam buns recipes, and allowing me to “invade” her kitchen.
Did you notice that all the steamed buns shown in this post are of uneven shapes? They were done by me. Her mother was kind enough to let me try my hands in shaping these buns. She said taste is more important than shape, and I passed her test! LOL!
