Pumpkin red bean bao

Tomorrow is a very important days for Malaysian... We will be casting our votes .
This recipe I have adapted from 孟老师 steamed bun recipe , resulting a beautiful orangey bao ...
Ingredients :-
75gm water ( you may not need all, add slowly till you get a pliable dough)
175gm plain flour
75gm pumpkin purée
15gm brown sugar
3/4 tsp instant yeast
1T corn oil

Knead all the above ingredients till you get a pliable and soft dough that will not still on your hand.
Covered and rest for 10 mins.
Divide into 25gm each . You will get 11 pcs. Roll flat and wrap in the red bean paste.
Let frement for 20 mins or till double .
Steamed starting with cold water , turning fire to medium heat for 20 mins Do not open the cover of wok immediately, off fire and let it sit for 3 mins before opening so you will get a smooth surface bao.
