Step-by-Step Chinese Steamed Bun Recipe

Ever wondered how they make those spiral-shaped Chinese steamed buns? This video shows you how, step-by-step.

The Chef fills the buns with a signature meat filling, but you can use your own filling from meat or vegetables.

The dough needs time to rise, so the buns take a while to make. There is also some tricky parts where you knead the dough, roll it out into small circles, then mold it into a spiral-shaped envelope. But how fancy they look when they’re finished!

Dough ingredients

1/4 cups of lukewarm water
1.5 tbs of active yeast
1 cup plus 3 tbs milk
1.5 tbs of sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 tbs of vegetable cooking oil
4 cups of all purpose flour

Look out for the link to the meat filling recipe within the video.
