Ok, come back to this post. The other day I saw a blogger 孤傲的王子 posted a famous burger shop in KL where their charcoal burger is very popular until long Q to get this burger. I will not travel that far and Q for a burger, so I decided to make it at home.
Again I used the Plain milk buns recipe to make this burger buns, still love the bread texture! Ya, you can keep the overnight milk sponge dough in the fridge for not more than 7 dayse..make it convenient for us to use the dough anytime when we feel like baking the bread within 7 days.
We like the spicy chicken from MCD burger, so I again copycat this chicken patty with double breading method. And it turned out almost like the original ^_^.
I did not use minced chicken but instead I cut chicken thigh into small piece like this..
Also cook the black pepper button mushroom which is my kid's favourite!
A really black charcoal burger buns! Anyway, we couldn't detect any charcoal taste ^_^
