Flower Bun

Look at this beautifully twisted HOME MADE flower bun and look at its glow. Yeah! Good work ... :)) This is a contribution from my hubby. It taste wonderful and goes so well with curry chicken. Looks simple, but taste great.

All you need :

300 gms of plain flour
40 gms sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1.5 tsp instant yeast
150ml warm water
2 Tbs shortening

The Process :

  • Sieve flour into large bowl and add salt
  • Mix warm water, sugar and instant yeast together in a bowl and rest for 5 mins
  • Next pour the mixture into the flour and mix it together
  • Add in the shortening and start to knead till it becomes a non stick dough
  • Next, rest the dough for 1 hour to double the size, cover with a cloth
  • Once the dough has doubled, re-knead it for 10 minutes
  • Leave it to rest for 10 - 15 minutes, cover with a cloth
  • Next, roll the dough and cut it into required size, flatten it into a rectangular shape
  • Prepare Ingredient 2 for applying on the rectangular dough
Ingredient 2 - 2 tbs shortening, 1 tbs sugar and mix well. Use this mixture to apply on
the flatten rectangular dough before "twisting" it into bun like.

** oops, I miss the photo of "twisting"...sorry..

Before steaming... the dough is resting..

  • After "twisting" the dough just like above photo, rest it for 10 minutes before steaming for 15 minutes.
Phuhyo....what a long process....hahahaha!
But it taste so nice, soft and tender, it is worth his effort after all!
