Broccoli & Asparagus Steamed Buns

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

How to cook: Heat some oil in a wok. Add the chopped garlic, ginger, and onion. Sauté until fragrant. Once the ingredients are sauted well, add the broccoli florets, asparagus cubes and Burma Burma Malar Stir-fry Sauce, and toss together. Season with salt and sugar. Thicken the sauce to your desired consistency. The filling is now ready. Now to prepare the buns, first split the baos and apply a thin layer of butter to each half. Fill each bun with the prepared asparagus and broccoli mixture. The next step is to steam the buns for 5-6 minutes. Garnish the buns with black sesame seeds. Place the buns in a bun basket and serve.

Oh No Khow Suey

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

How to cook: In a large pan, heat some oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add sliced shallot and sauté until it becomes translucent. Stir in Burma Burma’s Khow Suey Curry Paste and cook for a minute or two to release its flavours. Pour in coconut milk and water and keep stirring to combine everything well. Add vegetables — carrot, French beans, baby corn, green zucchini, yellow zucchini, and broccoli. Allow the mixture to come to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, which should take about 10-15 minutes. While the curry is simmering, cook the noodles separately according to the package instructions. Drain and set them aside. To serve, place a portion of cooked noodles in each serving bowl. Ladle the hot Khow Suey curry over the noodles, making sure each bowl gets a good amount of vegetables and flavourful broth. Lastly, to garnish, add chopped spring onions, brown onions, and a touch of Burma Burma’s chilli garlic oil for extra freshness and a flavourful kick.
