Traditional Miku Steam Buns | 传统面龟包子做法| 光滑和蓬松的面龟| 麵龜

Miku buns “面龟” are made for prayers during the Nine Emperor Gods Festival (“Gao Ong Yah” 九皇大帝/九王爷 ). This festival is mainly celebrated in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. This year, the Nine Emperor Gods Festival is celebrated from 4 Oct 2021 to 13 October 2021. During this period, devotees will bring Miku buns go to the temple to pray. After prayers, these buns can be left at the temple or brought back for snacks or breakfast. I usually go to Tow Boo Keong temple in Ipoh. These steam buns are sold outside the temple and the queue can be quite long. So making them is much easier.
