1. Mix the flour, Saf-instant® yeast, oil, salt and water together in a mixing bowl. Knead well for at least 10 minutes until you obtain an elastic ball of dough of an even consistency.
2. Cover the dough with a tea towel and leave to rise for 1½ to 2 hours at room temperature. The dough should at least double in size.
3. Knock back and divide the dough to make 12 small buns of equal size, roll into balls and slightly flatten.
4. Place the small buns on a sheet of parchment paper in the basket of a steamer (that of a pressure cooker, a bamboo steamer basket or an electric steamer) and steam for 30 minutes.
