Mandarin rolls or Steamed Mandarin rolls are a kind of steamed bun originating from China. The rolls are cooked by steaming. It is another one of the staples of Chinese cuisine which is similar to white bread in western cuisine. Because southern varieties of mandarin rolls are slightly sweet, they can be eaten plain. Sometimes it is eaten with sweetened condensed milk. The rolls are made of wheat flour, water, sugar, soybean oil, vegetable shortening, milk powder, salt, yeast and baking soda.[1]
