Simple Pan-fried Buns

Dumplings, wonton, and pan-fried buns with minced meat filling are some of my favorite food for dimsum breakfast. When I saw a dough recipe from RasaMalaysia, the thought pan-fried buns came to mind. I am happy that my first attempt turned out 'not-too-bad' though it could have been better.

Dough (adapted from
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/4 cup of water
A pinch of salt

Seasoned Minced Meat (Soy sauce, salt & pepper)
2-3 cloves of garlic
2-3 Shitake mushroom
Shredded carrot (for color)

Dipping Sauce:
Julienne ginger
Soy sauce

1. Knead the dough for 20-30 minutes
2. Roll it out to form a flat sheet and cut it into smaller pieces (round)
3. Wrap the filling and shape it like a bun
4. Steam the buns for 10-15 minutes
5. Heat the pan (lightly greased) and transfer the buns to the pan
6. Pan-fry the buns until lightly browned.
7. Ready to serve
