      Thanks Nazima! I had a couple leftover from dinner and I ended up packing them for my son for his lunch. Made a change from a dull sandwich.

    looks lovely! it is true, chinese food reallyt lends itself well to fusion. just went for a hakka-indian supperclub a week ago, and the food included things like “hakka noodles” and lemon chicken, all although not authentic in the chinese sense, were DELICIOUS. good one! I wonder how this will work with steaming the buns..:)

      Ooh, that supper club sounds great! Indian Chinese food is great, makes a change on both sides. Thanks Shuhan!

    What a delightful change from the usual BBQ Chinese buns. I love your photos and it is almost dinner time here and let me tell you after looking at these photos my stomach is growling. Take Care, BAM

    Your boas look gorgeous. Have not made them in a while, must make amends. You can now find chickne bao in Chinese restaurants and vegetarian one also.

      Thanks Norma! I wished you lived closer and then I’d take you with me to these Chinese joints and you could navigate me through the menu!

    This looks SO good! I love discovering new food’s that I’ve never heard of/tasted before. Looks like a dish I would love, plus that chutney looks tasty.

      Thanks Natalie. They were good. I like messing around with recipes once in awhile, though mostly, I am a traditionalist.

    Have you tried steaming these, like the chinese ones? It gives the dough a completely different texture.
    And, as for chinese cooking is full of pork – all you have to do, is swap it with chicken :-)

      Hi Anne, no, not yet. I wanted to try baked first, I will definitely be steaming them next time. Thanks for stopping by!

    These bao couldn’t be more enticing! Just look at how the egg wash helped their top crust to brown and shine. Well done to you and congratulations to Nami on winning your give-way.

      Thanks John! Yes, the egg wash does wonders!

  11. I’ve had very little Chinese/Indian fusion food, but I really like the concept. Love what you’ve done with bao! Tandoori chicken is brilliant in this. Really good stuff – thanks so much.

      Thanks John for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment! Indian food does really well with some Chinese influence. These bao worked out real well.

    Well done to Nami on the cookbook. I love the look of your ‘pork’ buns. I haven’t had Indian fused with Chinese before. I’m sure the Indian chicken inside the Chinese bun would be delicious xx

      Thanks Charlie..yeah, it was really good, the sweet and spicy chicken went well with the sweet bun.

  13. What a great idea – these buns look so good! A great use for leftover tandoori chicken.

      I am surprised Uru, considering Asian food has so may vegetarian options. You could make these with a cheese filling. They would be awesome with cheese!
