Easy make steam bao...with sengkuang (sweet turnip) as filling~~简易叉烧包...内馅是豆薯

Hubby and I visited a old friend last week. We visited this friend (SL) at his shop. The shop sells lots of different vegetables and poultry. He have been an old friend and classmate of my hubby since primary school. After visiting, when we left he gave us a big Sengkuang. Sengkuang is the name of this root corp known by Malaysian. It is known by the Chinese name 'bang kuan' to us Chinese who live in Southeast Asia and in Mandarin Chinese, it is known as 'dou shu' (豆薯). Sengkuang has a layer of thin brown skin and crispy, sweet and white flesh. It can be taken raw or cooked. It is usually use to make salad, rojak or all types of savory kueh muih filling. With this sengkuang given by SL, I used it to make my steam bao filling. It is a savoury filling with crispy texture when you chew it. The sengkuang gives the crispy and sweet taste for this filling.                 ~Sengkuang filling in the steam bao.. 里头的豆薯馅料 ~ ~This is the products ~ Pretty steam bao....
