Condensed milk is a thick form milk with added sugar. Now there are several categories of condensed milk. When I was doing this video I didn’t find the one with low sugar. If not I would have used more condensed milk by reducing a bit more milk. The reason why I didn’t add a lot of condensed milk is sugar and when its heavy it gives heaviness to the buns. If you like more sweetness can add more sugar too. I still worry why I didn’t open the buns to show you how it looks like.

As I always say the kneading process should be longer to get a good quality bun.When you knead well they form gluten, which is the protein that allows bread dough to stretch and trap gas bubbles produced by yeast. It give s a good texture as well as a good uniformity.

In most Asian countries they use condensed milk for making tea. It gives a nice flavour to the tea. When ever I open a can I leave about two table spoons full to make a beautiful cup of tea. I love to sip a condensed milk tea quietly to get the real taste of tea. Recently I visited a closed by Malaysian restaurant and I saw they making condensed milk tea there. Instead of dessert I thought I will order a cup of tea. Oh god it was heavenly.

Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management. My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner" I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self. As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
