INTERVIEW WITH @greatescape_v

The mix of savoury and sweet dishes in your Instagram looks stunning! When did your passion for food begin?
I grew up surrounded by many varieties of food as my family and relatives work in the food industry. My favourite memory is when my dad would bring me to the international food trade exhibitions and visit the production plants whenever he had an overseas business trip. I also enjoy watching cooking shows since I was young, it inspired me to craft things with my own hands. It is the feeling of satisfaction after seeing the result of my hard work that gets me.
What's your biggest challenge in creating these mouth-watering recipes?
Usually, I would draw and write down the ideas before making any dishes. However, sometimes the food may not turn out like how I wanted it to taste or look. Even so, I learned to keep trying and not give up. Eventually, it will turn out amazing!
Personal tips for your recipe viewers when working with Matcha recipes.
It was my first time experiencing different types of matcha powder. naturally, it took me a long time to understand and distinguish the differences. Each and every one has it's own distinct flavour profile. You definitely have to try them all as everyone has their own preferences of taste.
How do you come up with Jujube Stuffed Genmai Mochi Bun recipe?
My friend and I were preparing for a bazaar recently. We made a purple sweet potato flavored ones to match the location of the Bazaar. And I also remember that I was gifted with some homemade Jujube paste. I thought I could try out different pairing, so here it is.
How did you find using SUISEN / Genmai powder for this recipe?
I like the savouriness and roasted brown rice aroma of the Genmai powder. Especially when it is cooked/baked, the aroma deepens. It also pairs well with the Jujube paste. I would recommend this combo If you would like to try out different pairing.

BY @greatescape_v

Serve: 6 - 8 pcs
Prep time: 25 mins
Cooking time: 20 mins
Total time: about 45 mins


7g of SUISEN / Genmai powder
120g Glutinous Rice Flour
15g of Tapioca Starch
A pinch of Salt
13g Sugar
125ml of Hot Water

80g Jujube paste (a mix of Jujube and Brown Sugar)

Corn Oil

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix and knead into a soft dough. : Add the hot water little by little.
  2. Then, divide the dough equally into 8mini buns.
  3. Slightly flatten each dough with your palm and fill the centre with some Jujube Paste (about 8-10g each mini bun). Then, seal and roll to form a smooth mini bun. : Make sure to seal well to prevent the paste from leaking during the cooking process. Repeat the same with the rest.
  4. Heat up the corn oil in a frying pan over low-medium heat. Then, pan fry the mochi buns 4 – 5mins on each side or until golden brown color. : As you’re pan-frying the mochi buns, you can press onto them slightly with a spatula to make sure they are cooked thoroughly.
  5. I like to serve them warm, so let them cool on the cooling rack for a few minutes.
