Manju can be made with different ingredients, including yam, brown sugar and milk; they are mixed with flour to add flavors. When steamed buns are stuffed with various pastes, the food gains additional texture. They are popular, too.

Handmade Food Recipe

For dough

Mix cake flour with all purpose flour together and then add brown sugar, baking powder and yeast. Slowly add in water and milk until they start to become dough. Continue kneading and rolling for 10 minutes until dough is elastic. In the end, sprinkle some flour and knead for another 5 minutes. Set aside and rest for more than 20 minutes.

For filling paste

For the filling, you can choose whatever you like, it can be sweet potato, black bean, green bean, or yam. Whatever you pick for filling, slowly cook until soft, add condensed milk when it's soft. Stir and mix until it turns into paste.


Cut dough into small balls and roll them flat using a rolling pin. Grab a small amount of paste and put it in the middle, wrap it up and put them in the steamer for 5 minutes.
