Simple Mantou

Steamed buns are simple to make. I made these buns by using this recipe:

1 cup bread flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup lukewarm water

1 tsp instant yeast

1/2 teaspoon sugar

Mix the above together to get a smooth dough. Shape into a ball and place in a bowl, cover with cling wrap and leave to rise until double in size.

Once double, add in

1/2 cup pau flour

1tbsp vegan margarine

1 tbsp sugar

1/4 tsp salt

Knead to get soft dough, adding 2-4 tbsp water as needed. Roll up dough and cut into eight pieces. Place each roll on a piece of grease paper and leave to rise in warm place till doubled in size. Steam over high heat for 15 minutes.
