Instructions: Steamed Chinese Pork Buns

Put the yeast and sugar into the warm  almond milk and eave for 10 minutes

Sift the flour into a bowl and mix with the coconut powder, then slowly mix in the almond milk and yeast.

Knead these together for intervals for 20 minutes until smooth, then leave in a warm space for two hours at 30 C.

[If it isn't kneeded to a very smooth dough it won't rise with the yeast}

While it is rising mix the pork mince with the olive oil and cornflour and knead these together first, Then knead in all the chopped vegetables.

Put the steamer to boil ready - this holds a single layer above the boiling water.

Take the dough and quickly roll flat, then cut into 10cm diameter circles. Place a lump of the filling in the middle of each one fold over the top, and place in the steamer.

Steam each batch for 30 minutes.
