Spring onion pastry

Posted: January 8, 2009 by nietize in Chinese


Crystal Jade Xiao Long Bao has excellent spring onion pastries, and according to l, this restaurant at Tiong Bahru has it as well. I have been there before, around eight years but I can’t remember whether it’s that good. I have always had the impression that it was difficult to make but thankfully it isn’t. My mom came to me one day and said that it was really easy to make and that I should try it. And I did. I have to confess, I didn’t really participate in most of the steps. The preparation of the dough, with flour, water and oil, I watched my mom while she did it. Neither did I season the spring onions with salt and oil. But the preparation of the pastry, I made a number of them. 

It was perfect in all aspects except the taste, we added too much salt but i guess that’s an easy thing to remedy.

150 g sifted plain flour. Pour slowly into the centre of the flour, 150 ml warm water, and mix well. add 2 tbsp of oil and knead till smooth. Cover with moist kitchen towel for 15 minutes. 150 grams of spring onions, add 1/2 tsp of salt before adding 2 tbsp of oil, mix well. Roll the dough
