Those are very interesting looking and I am really curious, since I have never heard of baozi? What is its origin?

Thanks Floyd!

I was pretty pleased with how they turned out. It made a change from the usual baked breads and definitely more satisfying than defrosting frozen dim sum.

baozi = Chinese Buns, bao literally meaning Bun. They come in all shapes and sizes will all sorts of fillings, the most prolific being Char Shao or Chinese BBQ Pork. Other common fillings include Chicken, mixed vegetables, bean paste, and so on.

Bao literally means "wrap" or "enclose."  Or "bag".  Baozi are wrapped things, and an unfilled steamed roll is a mantou.
