Chinese Steamed Bun
Soft and fluffy, steamed buns all the way from China. They can be prepared with easily available ingredients and you don’t need oven to make these delicious buns.
During our Delhi stay, even though we walked a zillion times in front of this restaurant when we were roaming around in CP, never got into it. During our last visit to India, finally we decided to try some Chinese food from there. I am talking about ‘China garden restaurant’ in Delhi, CP -G block. We stayed just near by this restaurant on our last visit. Every morning when we get down from hotel, I used to tell my hubby that we must try this restaurant this time. A day before our flight to Tashkent, it was a very tiry day, busy schedules….so many things to do before going back and favorite part of Delhi visit – shopping too…We were really tired and hungry after a tight day. Left all our shopping bags and everything at the hotel, we decided to go to China garden restaurants.
We were surprised to see the crowd inside. From outside the restaurant, we cant see what is going on there. Absolutely loved the ambiance. Very good service. Above all, tastiest food. I must say, Tastiest Chinese food I have ever had before.Menu has got lot many varieties. We were impatient to spend time to go through all the items. Finally we decided to order a hot and sour soup to start with, chilli crab(both of us love crab), chinese duck roast(his favorite) and something with chicken( i forgot the name of that dish) with chinese steamed bun as main meal and Kulfi (traditional Indian ice cream) as dessert. I never had chinese steamed bun before. To be honest, I didn’t even know there is something like this existed. He had it before with his friends, so we decided to go for it. If you are ever being at Connaught Place at delhi and love to try chinese, I recommend this restaurant.
They served hot steamed bun in a bamboo steamer, which was soft and fluffyy. Both bun and bamboo steamer caught my eyes…. soo cute (wanna own one such steamer ;)…it was really cute….I am sure if my mom sees it, she will definitely get it before me ?).
On that day I told my hubby, I will definitely try to make this bun as soon as I reach tashkent. Some how it took 2 months for me to try. I was really happy with the result. Didn’t think that it will come out well at my first trial.
I served this cute bun with Indo-Chinese Chilli Garlic Chicken, and jullian cut carrot and cucumber.
Lets get started…..
