Spinach Rolls/ Straight Dough Method

Pin It Now!

Adding spinach is one way of adding green colour into dough. Here are my spinach mantou. Simply delicious especially have them with my favourite curry sauce or mushroom soup.

Are they look like snails to you ? ^o^

Reference from 阿芳的3杯面粉cookbook
Ingredient: yield about 12 pcs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup low protein flour
1 tsp yeast
2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp castor sugar
70g cooked spinach
180ml water
*Blend into purree

1 tbsp oil

1. Put all ingredients except oil into kneading bowl. Knead till all well incorporate. Add in oil and continue knead till form pliable dough.

2. Cover the dough and rest for 1 hour or double in size. Transfer the dough to working surface. Slightly knead to remove air bubbles. Shape into round and leave to rest for 10 minutes. 

3. Divide evenly into 6 portions. Shape as shown in the pictures. Put on greased paper. Place inside steamer and leave to rest for 15-20 minutes.

4. Steam from cold water with medium low heat. Once water boiled steam further 8 minutes. Serve!
