1 small turnip
1 carrot
1 tbsp soy bean paste
2 cloves garlic

Ingredients for the pastry:
2 cups flour
1 cup hot water
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt

1. Wash and shred the turnip and carrot thinly. Scald the bean sprout.

2.Preparing the fillings:
a) Pound garlic and soy bean paste together. Heat oil in a wok and fry until it is fragrant. Then add the turnip, carrot and cook until it is soft. Stir until they are blended and season with soy sauce, salt and sugar. Set aside and leave to cool.

3. Preparing the pastry:
a) Put flour in a bowl with salt.
b) Rub in butter until it looks like bread crumbs. Add in hot water and knead until smooth and soft. Leave aside to rest about half an hour. 

4. Making the vegetable puff:
a) Roll out the pastry and make into small balls. Roll out the pastry thinly and place it on a mould. Put some fillings  and wrap the fillings using the mould. If you do not have the mould, just roll out the pastry thinly and cut into round shapes. Place some fillings and close the pastry.
