    2. Roll each portion into a ball.
    3. Using a rolling pin roll the ball into a flattened disc a 1/4 inch thick.
    4. Place a disc of custard in the middle, pinch the edges of the dough together into the center so that when you flip the bun over the top is smooth and the base is pinched.
    5. Leave the buns to rest for 10-15 mins, smooth side up.
    6. Cut up some parchment paper to place under the buns so they don’t stick to the steamer.
    7. Steam for 20 minutes and leave to rest in the steamer for 5 minutes.

    Serve warm or room temperature.
