Piggy Pork Steamed Buns

Another piggy-themed food :)! I was inspired to make piggy-shaped pork steamed buns after I saw Kristy's cute mantou buns a few days ago. The recipe itself is adapted from Maangchi's savoury Jjinppang mandu, because I am not into mantou buns with sweet filling. I thought these sweeties would look rather festive to celebrate my 100th post - after 1 year and 1 month of blogging, post no.100 is not very impressive I know, but hey, juggling between work and blogging is not that easy, so I feel a little bit proud ;).

Ingredients (adapted from Maangchi's site)

1 cup water1 tsp sugar1/2 tsp salt2 tsp yeast2 tbs oil3 cups flourFilling
1 cup chopped onion1/2 cup chopped carrot1 1/2 cup chopped green onions2 cups mushrooms400 g pork1 tsp soy sauce1 tbs oyster sauce
1 tbs minced garlic1 tbs sesame oilWhat to do
Check the video from Maangchi below.

The little sweeties before they're steamed. I used red food-colouring for the ears and snouts.

How brutal...! Sorry little piggies, but I cannot resist taking a closer look at what goodies you have inside ;)

Three little piggies ready to be gobbled down by the bad, hungry she-wolf...;).
