Bapao is one of my family’s favorite food. Unfortunately, I could not make it. I followed many different recipes to make it, though I was not successful.
Luckily, my friend knows how to make it very well. She taught me how to make bapao.
Yesterday, I did it again with my kids. I was surprised at how good they were.
