Chinese Red Bean Bun

 Steps to assemble

Recipe of bun

3 cup flour
1 cup water
1/2 yeast

1st rise - 40min to 1 hour
Then divide dough to 2 then divide into 16 balls
Put the red bean paste in (I use a ice cream scope -small size)
Then let it stand/2nd rise for about 30-40min. It will be slightly bigger.

Steam for 12 minutes. Off fire and let it be in steamer for 5 minutes else will be hard

Recipe of red bean
1 cup of red bean (soak 8 hours or overnight)
Water enough to cover plus 1-2 inch extra
2/3 cup of sugar to taste

I use the rice cooker to cook the red bean. It took about 2 hours. 1st hour I use the porridge function. 2nd hour I use the rice function. When using rice function, the water will eventually evaporate.
Once the red bean soften and water evaporate, I mash it with a potato masher, add the sugar and cook the red bean paste in a pot. The sugar will make the paste wet, thus cook to the consistency of your liking
