This fried bun or roti goreng is one of my favourite kuih. I still remember masa kat Msia dulu, every Saturday after sending my other half to office in KL, I’ll always stop by at this Pasar Tani (Morning Market) in Jalan Ipoh (somewhere near the PNB, I think… not that good in road’s name) and bought this fried bun and also cakoi…. well, among other things he he he. I love pasar tani! You can get all the fresh vegetables and fruits and not to mention all kind of breakfast; nasi dagang, nasi kerabu, laksa, laksam … just name it and you can get it there. Hmmm.. how I miss all those food, not that can’t make it here but the idea of being able to just go and buy them is really fun. Well, have to wait till June then! In the mean time, let see the ingredient for this fried bun shall we!
Ingredient for the Bun:
- 200 g bread flour (I used normal flour)
- 20 g sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp instant yeast
- 140 ml milk
- 20 g butter
Ingredient for the Red Bean paste:
- 1 can of red kidney beans
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp oil
Red Bean Paste : Open the can and drain the red beans. Place the bean in the blender and blend till smooth. Pour into a pan and add sugar and oil. Cook till thicken. Set aside to cool.
Dough : Mix flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Mix well. Make a hole in the middle , pour milk and yeast and mix them together. Then add butter and mix well combine. Knead until it does doesn’t stick to your hand. Make a ball and cover the bowl with cling film and allow to rise for 1-1 1/2 hours…. OR like me you can mix everything into the BM and select DOUGH and press on.
Fried Bun (Pau Goreng) : Take out the dough and punch to release the gas. Make a small balls about half size of a tennis ball and you add red bean paste or you may add your favourite filling. Allow the bun to rise for at least 30-45 min. Fry until it turns golden brown. Take out and let them cool on a paper towel for few minutes before you can enjoy it with your tea.
