    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).

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

  1. For the filling;

    Cut pork or chicken into 1 cm cubes. Marinate the meat in the char siew sauce for as long as possible, upto 24 hours. Put into basket lined with baking paper. Add 300 g water. Set time to 10 minutes, temp Varoma, speed 3.

    When done remove basket with meat set aside drain bowl.

    Put filling in covered bowl in fridge.

    Start this section about 1 hour 45 minutes before you plan to eat buns.


    Rinse the bowl. Add all ingredients except baking powder to bowl. Mix speed 7 for 5 sec. Set time to 2 minutes speed interval or until dough is shiny.

    Do not remove from bowl. Leave to rise 1 hour. It will come all the way to the top.

    Add baking powder, knead at interval for 2 min. Remove from bowl.



  3. Lightly oil varoma trays. On floured board or table divide dough into 8 pieces. Roll each to a 10 cm round. Put large spoon full of filling in round. Pinch dough around filling. Place in varoma using both sections. Leave 2cm space between. Add 600 ml water minimum. Set time 5 minutes, temp varoma, speed 3 to bring varoma up to temp. You can start with hot water to shorten this time. When steaming set varoma in position. Steam 25 minutes, temp Varoma speed 3.


Accessories you need



When placing buns in varoma make sure they are not too tall. They will raise and it is best if they do not hit the lid.
