Lotus Leaf Bun 荷叶包

Lotus Leaf Bun 荷叶包

Don't underestimate these plain looking little buns. These buns are very easy to make and have a simple taste, yet my fussy little one could reject everything from porridge, rice, vegetable to fish but will happily munch down these buns without any complaint. There is no magic in it, perhaps simple is better sometimes.

You can have many variation with this bun. Stuff some vegetables or meat, and you can eat it like a sandwich. You can make a lot of 'em and freeze the leftovers. Just reheat the buns by steaming 'em for 10 minutes and you can enjoy it as good as freshly made.
