Coconut Custard Filling:
-2 whole eggs (approx. 100g)

Making the Paus:
Divide dough into 12-15 portions, shape into round balls. Roll flat and add 1 ½ tsp custard in the center. Fold sides together and pinch edges together to seal in filling. Dot with some red coloring and steam for 15 mins, lift lid to let excess seam escape every 5-8 mins.
