Cathy, the bun in the center is very unique, hehe, same fillings as well?

Cathysjoy said...

Min, the bun in the centre is yam filling. My mum made all the fillings & asked me to wrap in bread for her. hehehe ;)

At one glance, I thought the middle was an egg! My bad, lol! But the buns looks very soft, yum! Do you have the recipe for the chicken filling?

Cathysjoy said...

hahaha, the fillings are made by my mum. She steamed potatoes & diced them, diced chicken & fry with curry powder only with slight seasoning.

delicious bun, me drooling liao.
The centre piece looks like egg lei

Cathysjoy said...

Hahaha, it is not an egg. It is a mini bun with yam filling. The bun has a very smooth brown surface, that's why you thought it is an egg ;)

Anncoo said...

I also thought that's an egg at first glance ;DD

Cathysjoy said...

Hi, this is the first time I try this recipe but while I was doing the water roux, I remembered reading some blog advice of water roux is 1:5 ratio. May I ask why is your recipe measurement is as such?

Mae said...
