Cookbook Countdown #2 ~ RK ~ Soft Steamed Buns

Welcome to Cookbook Countdown! 
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
For Cookbook Countdown #2 ~ instead of featuring one cookbook.....
I choose Rachel Khoo as the featured cook!
and will be cooking randomly from any of her books seen below!
(great idea, oui?)
my collection of  Rachel Khoo's cookbooks:
from Rachel Khoo's Kitchen Notebook
with compotents from Sticky Chicken for the filling:
makes up these delish
The bun dough has milk powder in it, and after 1st proofing,
shape and fill the buns, proof for another 30mins
in a deep frying pan, fry the buns seam side down till you get a nice crust
add 500ml (I use vegetable) stock
bring to a boil, cover (tilt the cover to leave a gab if your cover has no vent)
and gently simmer for 35 - 40 mins or until there is a hissing sound
meaning the stock has evaporated! careful not to let the buns burn!

hot straight from the pan ~ super delicate and yumms!

Hi Emily,
That is an interesting way of cooking the buns! Must be very tasty cooked in the veggie stock!

Hi Joyce,
Welcome back to KL! I have included the recipe link, do give this recipe a go (and pair the buns with stir fried broccoli!).
