I really like this recipe. It has been ages since I last had dim sum and was my first try making steamed buns. The taste of the buns and the sweet bean paste was just like this Dim Sum restaurant near where I used to live. The dough was a bit hard to handle but with enough flour on the board and my hands it became manageable. It was quite a bit of work, but it was really worth it for the end result. Made for Spring '09 PAC.
I'm rating this based on the taste of the azuki paste, which is spot on. The "buns" didn't work for me, so I ended up using my Can Do Quick Sweet Dough. And baking them as that is the way I grew up eating this sweet Japanese treat. Thank you for posting, I will use the azuki paste recipe again. Made for 2009 Spring PAC
Thank you so much for this recipe. I've never had dim sum and hubby loves it so when I found this recipe I just had to try it. I made several from the bean paste but some with BBQ pork inside. Delicious. I didn't have a steamer so I used a small pizza screen with some parchment paper in my wok. Worked like a charm. I liked the bean filled ones so much I ended up going back several times and even had a couple the next day for breakfast. Definitely will be making this recipe again.
