Super Easy Nikuman (Steamed Pork Buns) using a frying pan

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 40min
Number of servings: 8

* 200g (7oz.) cake flour *I think all purpose flour is OK
* 1 tbsp. baking powder
* 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
* 100ml milk *water is OK
* 1 tbsp. sesame oil
* 100g (3.5oz.) ground pork
* 4inch (10cm) chopped long onion
* 1 tbsp. sake
* 1/2 tsp. grated ginger
* 1/2 tsp. soy sauce
* 1/2 tsp. sugar
* 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
* 4 chopped Chinese chives
* salt and pepper
cooking oil
sesame oil
soy sauce
Karashi (Japanese mustard) if you like

1. Sift A in a bowl. Add B and use your hand to knead together until formed. Then form the dough into a ball and wrap with plastic wrap. Leave to set for 20 minutes.
2. In a different bowl, mix C by hand (hand is better but using a spoon is okay) until all ingredients are combined and smooth. Then divide into 8.
3. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces using a bench scraper or a knife. Flatten out the dough with a rolling pin. Place the filling, pull and pinch the dough to seal like making a dumpling. (You can put water along the edge of the dough if it is too dry to seal.)
4. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan. Place the buns, then cook on medium for 1 minute. Add 180ml water, cover and steam the buns on med-low for 8~9 minutes until cooked.
5. Uncover, add a dash of sesame oil, and cook on high heat until the water is gone and crisp.
