I made the mantou ahead of time. Like 5 days before. And freeze it. So that when I feel like having some, it was easier to just thawed and steamed.

Here's the photo of the mantou with Kong Bak. yummy


this one had a spring onions shao bing on the side. I use the leftover dough to make the shao bing just to see if it works. As the original shao bing recipe is not the same.


Here's my recipe for it.

Makes 24 pieces
Ingredients
250ml water
500g hong kong flour
100g fine sugar
1.5 tbsp instant yeast

2 tbsp vegetable shortening

Method
1. In a mixing bowl, add water, followed by flour and the rest of the ingredients, except Shortening
2. Using a hook paddle, turn on the mixer to knead for 5 mins or until dough forms and leaves the sides of the bowl.
3. Remove mixer bowl and cover the bowl to proof in a warm place for 30 minutes.
4. When the dough has risen, double in size, remove and knead/roll on a floured table(flour it with HK Flour)
5. Cut into rounds, spread a little shortening on top, fold into half and set aside to proof for another 15 minutes.



6. Then heat up a steamer, add the mantou on it and steam on high for 5 minutes. Remove when its done.


7. Best to keep inside a ziplock bag to prevent it from drying out.

Notes
You can make all, steamed all to keep in the fridge, in a bag.
Steamed again for about 5 mins to eat with stewed pork.

If you freeze the mantou, make sure you packed it tightly. It can last for months in the freezer. Just thaw in room temperature and steamed.
