About Hua Juan Recipe:

These puffy and bouncy homemade Chinese steamed buns with scallions emerge from the steamer with a feathery light texture, a great crunch, and an onion kind of taste penetrating every bite. Hua Juan is a popular Chinese breakfast and snack item, fluffy white vessels that can be eaten plain or stuffed with a variety of fillings ranging from barbecued pork to egg custard. The dish is thought to have originated in China. The dough is basically the same as bao dough, but it's shaped differently, so you can make these in any shape you like. Because this is a yeasted dough, you'll need to give time for the dough to rise and then the shaped buns to prove. You'll also need a method for steaming the buns. This meal is surprisingly easy to prepare and quite delicious. They have a lovely somewhat sticky texture and are super soft. You may make your dream snack by dipping them in the wonderfully spicy dipping sauce.

How to Make Hua Juan Recipe


1. First, making the dough. Flour, salt, yeast, and sugar are mixed in a mixing bow, and water is added slowly. Mix on low for 7 minutes.


2. After mixing, the dough should look like the picture above. The amount of water should be closely monitored, as each flour is different; however, do not make your dough for this dish too


3. Place the dough into a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let sit at room temperature to rise about 2.5 times larger.


4. Roll the air out of the dough, sprinkle with a little flour to prevent sticking and cover with plastic wrap for 15 minutes. Then roll into a square shape.


5. Apply a layer of vegetable oil evenly on the surface of the dough.


Step 6. Sprinkle on the desired amount of green onions evenly across the dough.fold in one side, and begin to gently roll the dough. After fully rolled,cut the rolled dough into 12 portions.


7. Stack 2 of the pieces, one on top of the other. Press the chopstick all the way down. The dough at this time can be directly risen and steamed, which is a common shape of hua juan. Grab each end of the roll, and gently stretch a little. Finally, fold the ends downward and pinch the ends together.


8. After the hua juan is done, placed on the oiled steamer (allow enough distance between so they do not cook together). Cover the surface with a damp cloth and let sit for 30 minutes.
