Purple Rose Buns With Green Pea Filling

Have seen many postings by fellow bloggers on these cute little roses.  Here, are some of the cute little roses that I have made to satisfy my curiosity.  Do they look cute or awful?   Do visit these blogs for a better explanation on the making [Wendy, Table for 2...or more and Sherleen's Kitchen Diary ] if you wish to try.
[original recipe adapted from Sherleen's Kitchen Diary ] - I doubled the quantity and used Savoury Green Bean Paste as filling]
125 gm pau flour [can use supefine flour]
80 gm mashed purple sweet potato
20 gm sugar [I used 1 tbsp]
1/4 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp corn oil [I used vegetable shortening]  

Pau Dough
  1.  Mix and knead all ingredients [except shortening] in a mixer bowl until soft.
  2. Add in shortening and continue to knead dough until soft, smooth and elastic.
  3. Shape into a ball, cover and let it proof for 1-2 hours or until 1 1/2 times in size.
  4. Punch down and knead for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Divide dough into 10 gm each.  Roll each piece into a flat circle of equal width.  
  6. To form the rose, please see pictures below [I did the rose in 2 different ways].
  7. Place rose buns on paper cases and rest  for  30-40 minutes or until double in size in a steaming tray.
  8. Steam over boiling water for 10 minutes.  Off fire but leave buns in steamer for a further 2-3 minutes before uncovering and remove to cool on wire rack. 
First Way

Second Way 
For the second method, the dough weighs about 50 gm [you can make it either bigger or smaller. it's okay] and filling is about 20 gm.
Fillings - Savoury Green Bean Paste [see here for recipe]

Hi Phong Hong, not too bad as it tasted savoury sweet like the Angku Kuih. Bun is sweet and filling is savoury sweet.

Think, I'll like to eat these purple buns, more so with the savoury filling.

Hi Cheah, not too bad. I like savoury filling more than sweet ones and I like the colour.
