Matcha Mantou (Steamed Buns) step by step

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (everything except milk) until well combined. If using active dry yeast, keep it separate..
  2. Warm milk in a small saucepan over medium heat, constantly stirring until mixture becomes lukewarm. The milk should not be hotter than 40 degrees celsius..
  3. Slowly pour in warm milk into dry ingredients, continuously stirring the misture until it forms a sticky dough. If using active dry yeast, let the yeast rest in the warm milk for about 5 minutes before pouring into the dry ingredients..
  4. Knead dough until it becomes smooth and does not stick to your hands (around 10-20 minutes). Leave it in the large bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a damp towel. Let the dough rest until it doubles in size (45-60 mins).
  5. After the dough doubles in size, punch out the air and knead for about 5 minutes. Cover and let it rest for an additional 30 minutes..
  6. Lightly dust your counter and dough with flour and roll it out into a large flat square/rectangle about 1/4 an inch thick. Swiss roll it up until it becomes a spiral log. Cut into 6-8 equal pieces. (You can also just roll the dough into a log and cut it into equal sized pieces :D).
  7. Lightly cover the dough pieces in plastic wrap and allow them to proof for around 20-30 minutes. (Important to get fluffy mantou!).
  8. Boil water in a steamer over high heat and steam the proofed mantou for 5 minutes (make sure to cover lid with a towel to prevent water from dripping onto your mantou!)..
  9. Turn off the heat and let the mantou sit in your steamer for 5 minutes, without lifting the lid (the mantou may shrink if you skip this step). And thats it! Your steamed matcha buns are ready~ These are best served warm. Cover with plastic wrap or store in an airtight container while still warm to preserve moisture..
  10. Notes: - Steamer temperatures may vary. If your mantou turns out a bit wrinkly, try steaming it over medium heat for 10-15 minutes. - I noticed that replacing the water with milk resulted in slightly lighter mantou, but did not have the mild milky taste - Add more matcha powder if you prefer a stronger matcha taste! You can also try adding two tablespoons of cocoa powder~ - The mantou will expand in the steamer so make sure they're not too close together c:.
