Steam Pumpkin Bun

This is my first time trying out making bun, The shape might not be nice but the filling taste really good. I have to keep on practicing in order to make a perfect bun. And guess what, my sis dog enjoyed eating this and kept asking for more. Before the steaming is done, she kept coming to the kitchen to peep at what I am making. Such an adorable dog.

For the filling
300g Pumpkin puree
30g sugar
1 tsp Cornstarch

Cook until thickens and use 2 tsp to form into litlle balls and place on a line tray.
Chill until time of use.
