Siew Pau (roasted bun)...烧包



Siew Pau is my family's favourite. I never tried making Siew Pau until i saw these lovely Siew Pau recipe in HOdy Blog. These Seremban Siew Paus are a kind of roasted buns with flaky and fragrance skin and the filling is sweet and salty.


 This Seremban Siew Paus are full of flavour. I love the extra sauce in the filling, it makes the Siew Pau even tastier.

  4. Hi Mui Mui! Your Siew Pau look lovely and yummy... Sorry for asking this as I'm totally new to Pau making... Why do we need to make dough A and B separately and later combine them again?

    2. Hi Chef,
      Its my pleasure to be able to share to you.
      Mel is right. Dough A is water base dough, it consist of butter (oil) , water and flour whereas Dough B is oil/fat base dough, consist of shortening and flour only. Wrapping B in A and roll is to achieve the flaky layers.

      It is actually like making puff pastry. A basic dough rolled out add on pastry margerine, wrap up nd roll and fold and roll and fold..:)
      There you get the thousand layers in the puff:D

    3. Thanks Mel and Mui Mui! Really got lots to learn from you in terms of baking!

  5. When we travelled from KL to JB, we saw a building with a big sign:Seremban Siew Pau on the highway, asked husband to stop there to try on the Pau on the way back to KL but husband missed it, reason is the building isn't located exactly next to the highway but have to turn to a left exit before the building, that's why I couldn't taste those Siew Pau! Yours look very good there!Is it difficult to fold the top like this?

    1. Hi Jess,
      The top pleating not difficult if you know where to start. I have took down a clip on pleating my steam pau which the same method as this. I will post it up soon.

    1. Hi Phong Hong,
      These are quite time consuming. But you can always get ready the Siew pau skin ahead and keep it nicely in the freezer. When you need it just thaw it and wrap in the fillings then bake it.
      Dies that sounds better?? :p
