Steamed Leaf Buns or Slit Pau with Stewed Pork...

the yummy slit pau served with stewed pork.................

The wonderful pau flour ....with everything inside.......

Today...my cooking mood has return and i made some split pau to be eaten with some fragrant stew pork.....cooked in soya sauce....here i would like to share with my readers the making of this pau or buns the easy way....easy because i bought the packet pau flour with everything inside.....and there is no need to weigh anything... plus all the instruction...even for a novice cook...easy isn't it..?

roll the dough into oval shape......then brush surface with oil...

flip over and place a non stick baking paper...at bottom...

the slit pau.....after steaming.........

So i mix everything as instructed....knead it til smooth....leave covered to stand for 30 mins......shape into balls....and rolled into oval shape.....brushed with mixture of sesame oil plus normal cooking oil....fold over....steamed for 10 mins on high heat.....the buns or pau are ready to be served....with fillings of your choice.......it is best eaten hot with stewed pork.....i will share my stewed pork recipe in my next posting........

This is also a popular dish often served in a Hock Chiew wedding feast......they served it with stewed too kar' or pig's leg....too oily for my stomach....

my mommy loves to make pau too. is this a pre-mix pau flour? the one my mom bought needs to add yeast. we'll see if we can find this at the store.

shern's mom - oops..i forgot to tell my readers...that this packet of pau flour comes together with a packet of dry yeast..a packet of shortening... and a packet of sugar...with instruction on how to mix it altogether...it is the Happygrass brand..i bought it from the supermarket.
