Baozi (Filled steam buns)

When I lived in Japan this was a popular food that could be found in a steamy box near the register at any good "conbini" (Convenience store). These buns in Japan were filled with all sorts of fillings like Bean paste, Curried meats, vegetables or even pizza toppings. The Japanese names for them were azukemon, pizzamon, currymon, named depending on the filling inside. The chinese name for them are Baozi or Mantou. I'll be sharing a link to a recipe I found online and plan on making these on my next 3 days off. I think I'll use up some Gyoza filling I have in the freezer and maybe doing some ground chicken, garlic and green onion with some sort of a yakitori glaze mixed in.

If You guys try this in the next few days, let me know how it turned out for you.

So it appears that linking to the recipe page is prohibited. Just go to Salty / Savory / Sweet and do a search in the blog for Baozi. It should come up as the first link on the page.

Sometimes it isn't about what we do or don't allow and more about what the other end of the link thinks about it.

Yup.. that's it.. Strangely it comes up as a bad link if you link to the recipe directly.

Is this what we called manapua in Hawaii? A steamed bun filled with char sui, sometimes stamped on top with the makers mark?

I'm terribly inept with doughs, but I'd like to try making these. I have a specific question: what exactly is that square of paper stuck to the bottom? And, a general question: steamed bun filling recipes please.

That is waxed paper for allowing it to rise and to pick them up gently before they are steamed. It seems that just about any filling can be used.

Ps the wax paper is to stop them sticking to the bamboo steamer.
