Mantou (Chinese Steamed Buns)


Using a large bowl, mix all ingredients with a pair of chopsticks till the liquid is absorbed.

Hand knead or using a dough hook in a mixer, knead till a smooth dough is formed.

Cover with clingwrap and rest for 10mins.

With floured hands and working top, half the dough, roll out into a rectangle, fold lengthwise, meeting midway. Roll out the dough into a long strip, brush surface lightly with water, roll inwards lengthside to form a long cylindrical dough. Repeat with the other half.

Divide each portion into 10-12 pieces.

Place on greaseproof paper in a steamer and proof for 15 minutes. 

In a cold steamer, start with medium fire. When the water boils and steam can be seen, turn down the fire to low and steam for 7-10minutes. Turn off the fire and rest for a minute before removing the steamer from the stove and remove the lid.
