Pandan Red Bean Pau
Two weeks ago, a friend of mine bought some Pandan Butter Milk Pau for us to try.I liked the Pandan smell ,and it was really good too. This give me an idea to make some red bean paste Pau with Pandan flavour.
I used Pandan Juice (Pandan leave blended with water) instead of water, for mixing with the flour to form the dough. The outcome was good and the Pandan flavour compliment quite well with the red bean paste.Wannie had three pieces and wanted more. soft and spongy.
Ingredients - Dough (20 pieces)
Pau flour 500gms
yeast 11 gms ( 1 packet )
sugar 90 gms
water 250 gms (pandan juice)
baking powder 5gms
fat or shortening 40 gms
500gms Red bean paste
Mixed all the ingredients together into a dough.
2. Ferment for hour.
3. Mix again to form a smooth dough.
4. Divide into 20 pieces and round up.
5. Put filling and make into desired steaming.
6. Rest for 15 to 30 minutes before steaming.
7. Steam for 15minutes.
