Pau with Assorted Filling

Today I tried pau recipe from Baking Mum. Indeed as she literated, this is a very simple pau recipe which requires only 30 minutes proofing. It turned out to be very light & fluffy...! I filled up the paus with ready made red beans, yam (leftover from the buns the other day) and spicy sardine. All the 21 buns I made were gobbled up by my family in one go. LOL....

  1. Hi HK, lovely paus. I am glad you like the recipe. So far this is the only pau recipe that requires so short a proofing time which I really like.

  2. Rajinnya you buat filling dia. I am a big fan of pau. Must buy pau kat kampung. The one that sell by the road side is always the best. Thanks for this easy recipe. I can try it soon.

  3. Hugbear, thanks for the recipe. Not only it is easier but taste very nice too! Also thanks for dropping by at my blog.

    Zue, yeah true. Pau sold at my kpg use plain flour and a bit heavy but very filling as it is big & solid! The filling is homemade and very malay style like curry, mung bean & coconut. I miss it too!

  4. This version seems to contain alot of DABP.
    In my personal opinion, one should not consume too much of this, as it contains aluminium. Too much aluminium retained in the body over the long run is related to Alzheimers

    In my own opinion, I prefer yeast raised paus, with minimal help from DABP. FYI.

  5. Wendy,
    Thanks for sharing. I didn't know about it. Imagine what we eat nowadays contain a lot of chemicals. You remind me that we shd as much possible use natural ingred in own home preparations.

  6. salam..boleh tak tolong translatekan resepi ni dalam bahasa melayu?

  7. Ain::Za::Ta,
