1) Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl. When all combine, transfer to your lightly floured work surface and knead for 5 to 8 minutes until dough becomes smooth.
2) Place back to the mixing bowl and spray with some cooking oil. Roll it so that it is coated with oil. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
3) After 10 minutes, divide the dough into 8 portions, shape into balls, and place them in your greased steamer. Pour some cold water in the bottom of the steamer, cover and let the buns rise for 30 minutes.
4) Steam the buns for 18 minutes until they are cooked and puffed.
