Follow 👉 @thefoodietakesflight
Here’s what you’ll need for 12 buns
Oil and water, for cooking
More chopped spring onions and sesame seeds, for topping
1 cup warm soy milk or other plant milk
1 tbsp sesame oil*
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.
