Good morning Auntie,
Thank you very much for posting this recipe. I love to eat this bun with roasted pork. Will try it soon.

Hi Truc mai,

For pork filling, don't make this snail shaped buns.

Round up the dough into balls of 50 gm. each. Rest for 10 mins. Roll out into a tongue shape (oval shape), brush with some oil then fold over into semi-circle. Rest for 30 mins. before steaming.
Open up the buns after steaming, place meat inside and have a nice meal.

Hi Putu piring,

Never too late to try anything even if you're late by 3 years.
Take care.....don't eat your dog's biscuits o.k. (I remembered your dh ate them by mistake and till today I still laugh over it. I used to tell my friends this true story and had a good laugh).

Thank you so much for your advice Auntie. I will follow it.

Hi "Aunt",

I cannot imagine the technique of slicing & folding the bun. What is the shape of the dough when you slice it & in what direction it need to be sliced? Can you illustrate a bit more. TQ.

Hi Rozei,

The instruction is quite clear. Which part you do not understand. After cutting into strips, twist the buns like twisting somebody's ear - both ends twist at the same time in different directions.
