* You can also use "soft tofu" to make the buns even fluffier. It will make the dough quite soft so giving it a nice shape will become trickier. You can dust the dough with flour as you work on it, it will help (not too much though).
3.5g dry yeast
1. Add all the ingredients in the pan of your bread machine. Add yeast in the yeast compartment. Select dough cycle and press start as per manufacturer's instructions.
2. When the dough cycle is complete, remove the dough from the machine and place on a floured surface.
3. Punch the dough down and divide it in 6 pieces. Cover it with a damp cloth. Let it rest for about 15min.
4. Shape each piece into a round ball with a line in the middle of the bun, using a stick (eg.g chopsticks). Arrange on lined baking trays. Cover and let rise for 40~60min in a warm place or until the dough has doubled in volume. Lightly sprinkle flour over the bread, using a cooking sieve.
5. Preheat the oven to 180℃ degree. Reduce the heat to 150℃ degree and bake for about 15 min. Remove from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack.
1. In a frying-pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil and fry the garlic until fragrant and add the onion, cook until lightly browned.
2. Add the butter and melt completely, then add the flour. Stir and mix well.
3. Add milk little by little and continue simmering until thick, stirring occasionally with a spatula.
4. Add kosher salt, soy sauce, sugar and pepper. Mix.
5. Add, scallion, shrimps, crab sticks and mix well. (or shrimps, brown mushroom)
6. Remove from the heat and transfer the mixture on a plate or a baking pan. Leave it to cool. Then cover with plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge (or freezer if you are in hurry.) for about 1h or more until it's firm.
(The mixture is very soft, so better make it firm well so that easy to handle for the next steps.)
7. Lightly wet your hands with water and make small portions. The shape can be rough at this stage, it does not matter too much.
8. Dip each croquette (in this order) in flour, egg then panko. Make sure to coat with panko evenly all around, making the croquette into a nice round shape.
9. In a large cooking pot, heat the oil on medium-high heat to about 170C degree or until small bubbles appear around your chopstick. Deep fry 2 or 3 croquettes until all sides are nicely brown.
10. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain off the excess oil. Repeat with the remaining croquettes.
1. Preheat the oven to 160~170℃ degrees. Spread the hazelnuts out in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 15~20min, or until the hazelnuts become fragrant.
2. Remove from the oven and let them cool down. Then roll the nuts with your hands to peel the skin off, or most of it at least. They don’t need to be perfect, so just try to get as much as you can.
3. Add the hazelnuts in your food processor, then process them until just coarse-grained. Set aside 30g from these processed hazelnuts and keep them for further use. Then add sugar (30g) and whole milk (2 tbsp). Continue to process until the remaining is creamy and smooth. Transfer the hazelnut paste into a medium bowl. Set aside.
4. In a bowl, add egg yolk. Pour the milk into the bowl little by little, and mix. Add sugar and mix.
5. Transfer the milk mix into a small pan and heat up to 75~80℃ over medium heat, turn the heat to low and simmer for 3min.
6. Using a fine mesh filter (your usual sieve will do), strain the milk into a heat-safe bowl, then add inverted sugar and glucose. Mix well to melt. Let it cool down completely.
7. Once the milk mixture is cooled completely, pour it little by little into the hazelnut past bowl. Mix well.
8. Add heavy cream and mix.
9. Transfer the ice cream mixture into your compressor ice cream maker and let it run according to manufacturer's instructions. It should take 40~60min, depending on how cold the mixture. In case, you should let it run until the mixture turns thick and creamy.
10.Meanwhile make "caramelized hazelnuts : Put the sugar in a small pan, and melt it completely. Over medium heat, shake the pan gently to redistribute the melting sugar, but do not stir sugar at this point. When the sugar dissolves, add the coarse-grained hazelnuts from #3. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until the nuts are caramelized. Transfer it onto the baking paper. Once it is cold enough, crush them using a wooden stick or spoon. Set aside until the ice cream is ready!
11. Mix the caramelized hazelnuts to the ice cream.
12. Transfer the ice cream to a storage container, and let it freeze until you eat!
