Dissolve the yeast into the warm water or milk at about 40 degrees Celsius, stir well, and leave for three minutes;
Pour the yeast water into the flour, stirring with chopsticks while pouring, do not leave any dry powder; knead the dough by hand until the dough appears smooth;
Put the dough into a bowl and cover it with a lid, let it ferment in a warm place until it doubles in size and the inside of the dough is evenly honeycombed.
The bean paste filling is homemade by me, I have the steps to make it in my other recipes, so I won’t go into details here. You can use cooked whole red beans, or you can make the bean paste filling from the red beans.
Sprinkle a little thin noodles on the case plate, knead the leavened dough repeatedly until the surface of the dough is smooth, cut the dough, if the cut surface has air holes, you need to continue to knead, knead until the cut surface of the dough is smooth and without air holes, shaping the dough into long strips, cut 16 doses.
Knead the dough with one hand until it is smooth on the side close to the board, and roll it out into a thick circle. Pack in the right amount of bean paste, close the mouth like a bun, and pinch tightly. Invert the bun onto the cutting board and shape into a round bun. Sprinkle a little flour on the bottom of the bun, cover with plastic wrap or a drawer cloth and let rise for 20-30 minutes.
Put cold water in the steamer, cover the steamer drawer with a damp cloth or silicone paper, put the bean buns in, leaving a distance, and cover the pot.
Heat the steamer on high heat and steam for 20 minutes on medium heat.
Turn off the heat and let it sit for five minutes before serving. Immediately open the pot steamed buns encounter cold air and the surface will wrinkle and retract.
