Keroppi Matcha Steamed Bun aka Green Tea Tau Sar Pao, aren't they cute?
I have been wanting to make this since last year when my boy told me he loves Keroppi. I don't like to use artificial colouring in my boy's food so green tea powder is my first choice, it's easy to blend into the dough without the need of extracting juice from green plants such as spinach or pandan leaves. Just mix some green tea powder into the dough and it looks perfectly green and it will not affect the taste of the steamed bun. I have got some red bean paste at home, just nice for the green tea steamed bun fillings, they're the perfect match!
