Easy Chinese home cooking NO.1--Hua Juan

Ok, this is not something I ususally do, but after I got pregnant, it seems that I have gone through some interests change as well. I ususally don't like cooking that much and often get upset when things go wrong. These days, however, I was very inspired to experiment different styles of Chinese cooking.

This first one I would like to share is called "hua juan", direct translations is "a flowery roll". It is the same way as cooking a steamed bun, just we make it prettier. :)

Prepare: dough for steamed bun/bread recipe, chopped spring onion mixed up with 2 tbs olive oil and about 1 tbs salt

Step 1: Divide the dough into two parts. Roll each part thin and flat. Spread spring onion, olive oil and salt on the surface until it covers all. Then fold up like this on two sides.

Step 2: Chop up the stick you made from previous step into small pieces of 1.5 cm wide. Then place two pieces together to shap a butterfly.

Step 3: Boil water high, then place the "butterflies" in the steamer and steam them for about 20 minutes on high heat. After it's done don't open the lid immediately, but let the buns sit for about 10 minutes.

Step 4: Serve!
