Steamed bread 馒头 (mán tou)

Chinese kitchens do nottraditionally have ovens. Instead, bread dough is cooked by steaming it in stacked bamboo steamers. There are a variety of sizes available of steamed bread buns. Small buns are often fried and dipped in condensed milk, and clamshell-shaped buns can be filled with meat. You can find steamed bread buns frozen at Asian grocery stores.
