Soft and yummy. Sedapp!!
550g – 600g flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup caster sugar
250 ml water
2 tbsp evaporated milk
3 tbsp margarine
Enough red bean fillings or any fillings preferred
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add in sugar and dry yeasts. Mix well. Make a well in the center and pour in the rest of the ingredients. Mix till a sticky dough is formed. (You can use your mixer).
Using yr hand, knead until dough does not stick and can be worked through nicely. Form into a big ball. This will take about 10 – 15 minutes. Add a little flour, if necessary. (Do not add so much). Leave covered for 40 minutes or until it doubles. (See how I left my dough to prove in previous post on ‘pau’).
When dough has doubled, punch it and knead again lightly for a while. Divide into 24 balls. Wrap each ball with filling. Put on a floured surface or plate and leave again for another 20 minutes. Deep fry. Use small to medium flame.
