Pan-Fried Scallion and Toasted Sesame Buns⁠

Here’s what you’ll need for 12 buns⁠

Oil and water, for cooking⁠
More chopped spring onions and sesame seeds, for topping⁠

Wet Ingredients⁠
1 cup warm soy milk or other plant milk⁠
1 tbsp sesame oil*⁠

Dry Ingredients⁠
3 cups (375g) all-purpose flour⁠
2 tsp instant yeast⁠
1/4 cup (55g) sugar⁠
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds*⁠
1/2 tsp salt⁠

Scallion & Sesame Filling⁠
2 cups (120g) chopped scallions⁠
1/2 tsp salt⁠
1/2 tsp Chinese five spice powder, can be subbed with 1/4 tsp white pepper⁠
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds*⁠
1/3 cup hot neutral oil (microwaved for 2.5 minutes)⁠

Toasting Sesame Seeds⁠
Heat a pan. Once hot, add in the sesame seeds. Cook over medium heat until lightly brown. Keep moving around to evenly toast. Leave to cool and place in an air-tight container for future use.⁠

Preparing the dough⁠
In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients.⁠
Mix warm soy milk and oil. Pour it in the flour mixture while mixing. I used wooden chocksticks and a spatula to mix everything together. Keep mixing until a dough is formed.⁠
Shape the dough into a ball. You can use your hands! Knead for a few minutes, around 20-30 times.⁠
Brush the bowl with some oil then place in the dough. Cover it with a towel and let it rest for at least 2 hours to let the dough rise.⁠

Making the filling⁠
Place the scallions, salt, five spice powder, and sesame seeds in a bowl. Mix well.⁠
Heat the oil. I simply microwaved mine at high for around 2.5 minutes. Pour the hot oil in the scallion mixture. Mix well then set aside.⁠
