Pan friend buns with lamb mince filling


Ingredients for bun:

  • 180 gram plain flour
  • 6 Tablespoon boiling water
  • 3 Tablespoon cold water

Ingredients of fillings:

  • 200 grams of minced lamb
  • 45 gram chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon corn flour
  • Salt to taste
  • A dash of Sesame oil


Step 1

Method for filling: • Heat your frying pan over medium heat. Add some oil then add chopped onion and sauté until soft. • Next add your mince to frying pan and stir for a minute. • Finally add the sugar, soy sauce, pepper, corn flour, sesame oil and salt. • Stir all ingredients well. Keep an eye on this; as it should not become dry. These buns are a lot tastier when the inside is juicy.

Step 2

Method for bun: • Sift flour into a bowl. Add 6 tablespoons of hot water into the flour. Use a spatula to mix well and create some little flour crumbs. • Next add 1 tablespoon of cold water at a time into the flour. Use hand to knead the dough until the surface is not sticky. Brush a bit of oil on the bottom of a bowl, put your dough inside the bowl and cover with a wet tea towel to rest for 30 minutes. • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times until smooth. • Roll the dough out, have it about one inch in thickness. • Use cookie cutter or teacup to cut the dough into equal circles. • Take one to two teaspoons of filling and place inside the cut dough. Close the opening and form in a bun shape. • Heat your non-stick frying pan or pot (I prefer to use pot as it seems safer) over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of oil. Place the buns in a single layer ensuring they are spaced out. Fry them until both sides are light brown. Add 1/3 cup of boiling water, cover with a lid and cook until the water dries up.
