A kind of Japanese bun I had never tried before, till I baked them myself. Chikuwa = Japanese grilled fish cake. One of my favorite fishcakes, which I usually cook it with udon soup. A little sweetness in the fishcakes stuffed with tuna onion mayo, is so very Japanese, though it may not be the traditional way. I find it quite addictive as both the combination are my favorites!
This can be a full meal as a quick lunch, all I need is just a bowl of green salad with sesame dressing!
Half a can of Tuna flakes.
3 tbsp of Japanese Mayonise
Small amount of chopped onion
7 Sticks of Chikuwa
Ingredients for Bun:
Bread Flour 250g
Egg yolk 1
Instant Dried Yeast 3g
1. Mix all ingredients to form a sticky dough, and continue to knead by hands till smooth and springy. Cover the dough and let it rise for an hour.
2. Press the dough to let out the air, and give a few gentle kneads and divide the dough into 7 portions, let the dough rest for about 20 minutes.
3. Wrap in the stuffed Chikuwa and let them rest on baking tray for another 45 minutes. Bake in pre heated oven for 11-12 minutes at 190'c.
