Vegetarian 'Siew Bao'

Another week to go, as usual check the fridge and make some clearance before heading for some new stocks. Not much left, just some vegetarian 'char siew' and some red bean paste. I've used the vegetarian 'char siew' to make some 'char siew' filling. I'm not making any 'char siew' steamed bun this round but baked 'siew bao'. 'Siew Bao' is one of our local famous goodies and street food as well, which is usually made of meaty 'char siew' filling with crunchy crust and also with lots of sesame seeds.

**Ingredients for Dough (A) :

**Method :
