  • 100 g red cabbage, diced
  • 65 g sugar snap peas, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger, powder
  • 1 tsp paprika, powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 300 g all-purpose flour
  • 150 ml hot water
  • pinch of salt

  • (optional) sesame seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp oil

Recipe Directions


  • Prepare the filling ingredients. Add to your cooking pot over medium heat with a little water to prevent them from sticking to the pan. Mix and cook until onions become translucent. Once done, empty the filling into a bowl and set aside.
  • Mix all the dough ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Knead the dough with your hands for a few minutes in the bowl. Split the dough ball into 9 pieces. Keep them under a damp towel to prevent it from drying out while you are making the buns.
  • One at a time, roll or shape the dough into a round shape about the size of your hand palm. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the cooked filling. Fold the dough edges over itself and pinch together to form the dough together. Make a tight twist to secure it. Repeat for all the buns.
  • (Optional) roll the filled buns into some sesame seeds. Add the cooking oil to the pan and add the buns in the pan. Allow them to cook on this side until golden brown. Add the 100 ml cooking water and place the lid on top of the pan to allow the buns to steam. When the water is evaporated the buns will be ready. Enjoy with a little sweet chili sauce on the side!
