I’ve been playing through Tales of Zestiria and they make Mabo Curry Buns look soooo good that I had to try and make them. I decided to bake them but they could be steamed (more traditional) just as easily.
What you need:
Mabo Tofu Sauce
S&B Curry Bricks
10 ounces Ground Pork
10 ounces Firm Tofu
Dinner Roll Dough (I found it in the frozen section)
So first things first, if your roll dough is frozen you need to de-thaw it. I put it on cookie sheets covered for about two hours.
Once they are thawed, brown the meat and chop the tofu.
Dissolve two sections of the curry brick into ¾ a cup of water. (Put the other three sections away to make curry rice later. Curry rice? Dissolve them in 1 ½ cups of water and pour over rice.)
Stir until smooth.
Add Mabo Tofu sauce to the meat. Stir.
Add the curry sauce to the meat. Add ¼ cup of water. Stir.
Let simmer for 5 minutes. Add Tofu. (If you try it at this point and think it seems salty, don’t worry. The bread balances it out)
Simmer for three minutes then take off the heat.
Now to make the buns. Use a rolling pen to flatten a roll on some plastic wrap. My rolls were tiny, so I combined two for each bun.
Put in a couple of spoonfuls of the mabo curry.
Pull up the sides and pinch at the top.
Place on a greased cookie sheet. I made 5 buns and put the rest of the filling in the fridge to make more tomorrow. Also good with rice.
Once all the buns are filled, let them rest for about 5 minutes. Repinch in any areas that have come undone. Now place them in a 375 degree oven for 12-14 minutes.
Done! Mabo Curry buns! I recommend making these during the water trial because you are going to need something to make you love the game again.
