Roll water dough to form a diamond shape then put oil dough in a middle and wrap it up. refrigerator for 10 minutes

Roll the dough and fold, refrigerator again ………4 times

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


– All purpose white flour : 2 cups  + 1 cup

– White sugar : 1/4 cup

– Milk or water : 1 cup

– Baking powder : 3 teaspoon

–  Corn Starch: 1 tablespoon

– Shortening : 2 tablespoon

– High active dry yeast : 1 pack – 7 gram

– Vinegar

Start :

– Warm up 1 cup of milk : Microwave for 50 seconds

– Add 1/4 cup white sugar and yeast, stir then wrap it up and put in to the microwave ( that is the perfect place for yeast ‘s activation – warm and moist. Please don’t turn the microwave on).  After 20 minutes….

– Put 2 cups of flour to a large bowl, add corn starch and baking powder then mixed it. Add yeast to the bowl and mixed it . I would have to mixed it for 5 minutes and add 2 table spoon of shortening. Knead the dough for another 20 minutes.

– If  it too wet => just add flour

–  If it too dry => just add cold water

– After that put the dough in a large bowl, wrap it up and put it in the microwave to rise for 3 hours.

Tips :

– The dough needs 3 hours to rise.

– Just add very little flour when you roll the dough.

– Add 2 table spoon vinegar to the steamer, add water and steam the buns for 15 minutes to make the buns white and tasty.

– I use original white paper cut in to smaller square, put each bun on that paper and steam.
