So here, I'm starting something delicious with my otak-otak. nom...nom.... Is this bun looks familiar to you? Yeah, remember the flaky crusted Charcoal tuna bun I made last year! Something similar too. I really did made good used of those homemade otak-otak. Are you salivating just by looking at it ? haha.... So, here's what I did..
Ingredients for bun dough :
400gm bread flour / high protein flour
3 tspn yeast
2 eggs, do not beat

Stir everything together to form a dough and knead well, set aside to rest for 1-1/2 hours or till double in size.
100gm bread flour
3 TB sugar
1 tspn salt
60gm cold butter, chopped
Once the starter dough is ready, stir in the main dough ingredients and mix well till everything is well combined. Knead to smooth then again let to rest for another an hour.
When done, punch dough to release air and knead well. Place dough to a slightly floured working table then divide dough into 10 portions. And let dough ball rest for 5 mins before placing in the fillings.
