Red bean & Mochi bread buns 红豆蔴糬面包

My kids like to buy a type of match bread that wrapped with red bean paste and mochi from a nearby bakery shop. Also a Instagram friend requested me to make a nice red bean and mochi that she has tasted. So this is my version of red bean and mochi buns.

There are quite many steps to make this bread.
For mochi making..

For shaping

At first, i made matcha or green tea buns, but wasn't satisfy with the mochi which turned hard the next day.

The next day, i tried again new method of making mochi. And this time the mochi stay very soft till next day.

I made every elements from the scratch, from red bean paste, mochi and bread, so check out the long recipe here:-
