First we are making the filling for the bread
Prepare the filling first, mix the shredded pork and the chili paste together.
Wash your hands and really mix them well. It should look like a wet dog. If you cant find chili paste, salad cream make a good variation too.
If you wanna be a serious baker don't trust the cup, use the scales. It's much more accurate.
Put flour, yeast, powdered milk in a mixing bowl
Beat the egg lightly
Add only half the eggs (20g) to the sugar,salt,water mixture.
Dont add all of them, keep some for the egg wash decoration.
With hook attachment on low speed (2) Combine the dry ingredient
Add the wet. Until combined and looks like this (no dry flour flying around).
Keep kneading on on 2 speed
It's ready when you can spread the dough to the point you can see your finger print.
Proof for 8-10 mins. If u dont have the poofable oven, just left it covered with moist towel (not soaking wet please!!) in heated room.
It will get lighter and bigger
Dust ur workspace. I ran out of space so i use my stove top as my space 😢
Cut the dough. Always press cutting it do not pull or try to saw it, or the dough will deflate.
Make an approximately 40g balls
Line them up. The ball doesn't has to be super neat. Just don't try to deflate it too much.
Separate the wet dogs, oops! I mean the shredded pork fillings according to the number of the bun u made
With small rolling pin, flat down the ball, then use the dough cutter to put it pretty side down.
Press around the edge until it looks like a condom. 😰 yes, i know, my friend though so ...
Put the filling in the middle
Edge to edge and the other edge.
Put it in a cupcake liner.
After making all the buns, use the left over flour by cutting into tiny pieces. Make round shapes.
Stick it on the bun
Poke some dents (dont drag the stick, press, press and press). Dont go all the way down, just dimples and dents.
Proof for 30 - 35 min
Can u guess? It's getting twice bigger. Now go preheat the oven to 180 degree C or 350 degree F
Press down the nose, and dent the nosetrills again.
Add bit water to the remaining eggs and brush the egg wash over the bun.
Pipe tomato sauce over the bun...be creative!
Put them pigs in the oven for around 15 mins.
Voila! Cool them down on a rack.
Aren't we cute? Serve us at your party. The guests would love it. Enjoy! 🐷
