      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Preparing the Dough -1xGreen & 1xWhite without green Tea.
  1. Add water, yeast, sugar & green tea powder into the TM bowl and mix for 2 mins at 37C and SP2.
  2. Add oil, salt & flour to the mixture and mix for 5 seconds on SP5.
  3. Knead the dough for 2 minutes. Wrap dough in TM Mat and let it proof for at least 45 minutes before shaping the dough to desired shapes.
  4. Shaping as Roses - Divide dough into 2 parts. Roll out to about 0.5cm in thickness. Use a 7cm cookie cutter to cut out the rounds. Arrange 5 pieces of cut dough on top of each (overlapping in the middle) and space them to about 15-20 cm wide. Gently push the dough into a roll and cut into half to give you two roses. Place the greaseproof paper at the bottom and arrange them in the Varoma dish and tray.
  5. Allow the dough to rest and proof for 15 minutes before steaming the buns.
  6. To steam mantou, add 600g of cold water to the TM bowl and place Varoma dish & tray on top and steam for 16 minutes at Varoma heat on SP3.
  7. Let it rest for 5 minutes and serve as it is or other options including coconut jam (Kaya) or other types of jam.

Note: This dough is for the Green Tea flavour & colour. For plain dough, omit the green tea powder. You can make 2 set of dough to shape the roses the way you like them - just alternate the green & white cut rounds/dough when making combination coloured Mantou.
