Chinese Pan Fried Buns are totally out of the world delicious! Crispy and chewy from the bottom and soft and fluffy from the other side filled with delicious dynamite prawn filling is too good! The look of this bun attracted me to try this one! Crispy golden on one side and soft fluffy bun on the other side is so appealing and attractive that you will never fail to take one!
This recipe is inspired by Marion’s Kitchen, which I love to watch the most! It has different layers of flavors and textures that you will fall in love with. You may use my Chicken Momos in 2 Ways filling here or this Mini Taco Bites. The cooking part here should be very careful!
In this cooking, part is a little tricky! Be very careful while pouring water into the frying oil, keep the lid ready and close it immediately after pouring the water to avoid splattering.
