Air baked Otah bun 窝咑餐包 (Tangzong Method)

My family loves the Otah that is near my place and every time when I passed by that area, I will buy for the family.  Seems like the prices went up again, perhaps it is time for me to learn how to make them.

I have done an otah bun using straight dough method and so today I shall try Otah bun 窝咑餐包 (Tangzong Method).

Findings: The buns are so soft and fluffy even the next day!

I made these into tiny buns based on 42g dough and 1 piece otah.
