Bakpao Ayam

Hello!

Do you like steamed buns? They are China origin but you can find them all over Asia 😀

I believe in the Philippines they are called Siopao but in Indonesia it is called Bakpao. The origin word of bak means pork, but in Indonesia all sorts of fillings are available from chicken, beef, chocolate, mung beans, etc, and they are called BAKpao, so no longer for pork only 😀 It is not easy to find pork filling steamed buns in Indonesia, I believe, since the majority are Muslims.

Today am sharing you the chicken filled ones 😀

Because these are chicken filled, I thought to shape/decorate them as chicken :DI include the video should you like to see more of how I prepared these buns 😀
