Steamed Pumpkin Flower Rolls is a type of Chinese steamed buns. These buns are without filling and are normally eaten plain. Pumpkin paste which is bright orange colour is used to create something bright and pretty for these flower rolls. These Steamed Pumpkin Flower Rolls are made specially to celebrate the coming Chinese New Year and they are exactly what I am looking for … they are pretty, incredibly light, moist and fluffy in texture and so delicious. Having them for the Chinese New Year is believed to bring prosperity or good luck too.
These Steamed Pumpkin Flower Rolls are surprisingly easy to make, only it may take a bit of time waiting for the dough to rise. But the actual work involved is quite simple. First, just combine all DRY ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Then add the WET ingredients and knead till you get a smooth dough. Divide the dough into small pieces and shape into flower shapes. Next, set aside to proof till double in size. Then steamed and we’re done!
A special thanks to my dearest sister (Mui Khin) who took the time and trouble to share with me this lovely Steamed Pumpkin Flower Rolls recipe. Without her, these flower rolls may not turn out to be so amazingly beautiful. Thank you Ji Cher!
