500g plain flour
250ml lukewarm water
3/4 tbs instant dried yeast
2 tbs sugar
1 tbs vegetable cooking oil
Mix yeast with some of the lukewarm water and leave for a minute
Mix all the rest of the ingredients together well including the yeast
Work the dough and leave to rest for 45 mins (depending on the climate) – the hotter it is, the quicker the dough will rise. In hotter climate, the dough normally rises after 30 minutes. So keep an eye on it.
Once the dough has risen, work the dough a little bit more
Grab a handful from the dough and make a “pow” round size
Insert the filling and leave for another 30 – 45 minutes
Once the “pow” doubles in size, steams it for 12-15 minutes.
Savoury Filling Idea:
Stir fried/roast chicken
Star anise stewed hard boiled egg
Pows can be frozen. Thaw out and re-steam for 12 – 15 minutes.
Note : Chocolate will do as sweet filling.
