Bakpao (Steamed Dumpling)

It never crossed my mind to make this dumpling by myself, I thought it was so complicated but I was wrong. It's easy to make ^_^ and finally after in such a long time I can eat my fave food again. Thanks to Mbak Retno for sharing the recipe. I made change for the filling, because I forgot to soak the mungbeans and the dough was already done & raised, so I substitute it with nutella and cheese. Great taste!!

500gr All purpose flour
1 pack. dry yeast
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
250ml warmed milk

- mixed all ingredients in mixer bowl then knead it well & can be formed & not sticky.
- cover the bowl with damp cloth and keep it in warm place for 1 hour or until the dough rise in double size.
- punch the dough and then divide it into 12 balls, then fill each balls in with nutella or cheese, then you can shape it as you desired.
- Steam the dumplings for 20-30 minutes
