Steam Bun using a sourdough starter
Steam Meat Bun (Rou Bao)
Over the weekend, I decided to experiment with my sourdough for a steam bun recipe. Having done a little research on "steam bun", there were recipes which use "old dough". So I decide to twist the recipe by incorporating firm sourdough starter. The result was really good. Just remember to use cake flour in the making of the firm sourdough starter and the final dough. And you will obtain the soft texture like those in the Dim Sum restaurant.
