images of Paneer Bao Recipe / Bao Buns Recipe / Paneer Gua Bao / Taiwanese Folded Buns - How To Make Bao Buns Recipe
Paneer Bao
Yields: 12 buns

Ingredients for the dough

Maida / all purpose flour - 2 cup

( add 1 or 2 tbsp of flour if your dough is sticky)

Milk powder - 1 & 1/2 tbsp

Dry Yeast - 1 & 1/2 tbsp

Luke warm water - 1 cup

Salt - 1/2 tsp

Sugar - 2 tbsp

Method

Take warm water in a bowl add the yeast ,sugar and salt mix to dissolve, cover and wait for the yeast to activate may be 5 to 10 minutes. 

Once its foamy add the flour and milk powder gently mix to form a soft dough. If dough is sticky add more flour to get the right consistency.

Dough should not be very stiff like we knead for roti. Grease a bowl and place the dough , cover with a tight lid and wait for 1 to 2 hours for the dough to double in size.

Punch the dough slightly to knock out the air and knead once , divide the dough into small equal size balls. Roll the balls into thick poori or roll out the whole dough like a thick sheet and cut into circles using a cookie cutter.

Apply oil on both sides of the bun and fold it into half, place these on a parchment paper or banana leaf. Applying oil prevents the fold of the to bun to stick together.

Cover and rest for another 30 minutes to rise. Steam these buns till they puff up. Once cooked they look glossy and dry on top. 

I covered the steamer lid while steaming with a cloth so the water does not drip down on the buns and the towel will absorb the water (this step is optional).

Paneer cut into small cubes - 2 cups

Red chilly powder - 1 tsp

Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
