3. Divide both water & oil dough into 10 portion each. Flatten 1 piece of water dough & wrap 1 portion of oil dough in it. Pinch to seal edges.

Cut the dough in the middle into 2 equal pieces. With the cut side facing down , flatten the dough, making edges slightly thinner than the centre. Wrap filling & pinch lightly to seal.

BOSCH MaxxiMUM Sensor Control Kitchen Machine (MUMXX40GGB)

My birthday gift came early this year. I received a set of Bosch MaxxiMUM Sensor Control Kitchen Machine (MUMXX40GGB) by Bosch Singapore recently. Let's take a look at the features of this kitchen mixer.

Sensor Control
This is the highlight of the kitchen machine. Sensor control automatically recognises the optimum stiffness of cream & whipped egg whites. The stirring whisk then stops on its own to deliver optimum results. This prevent cream from turning into butter! 
Extreme Power
Having the most powerful motor (1600watts) on market, this kitchen machine guarantees durability as well as fast & perfect results every time you whip up your batter/dough. 

Easy Arm Lift
Easy arm lift allows the mixer arm to be lifted at the touch of a button. 

3D Planetary System
What I love most about the machine is the three dimensional mixing system. Thanks to the mixing motion in three directions at once, ingredients are mixed perfectly! No more stopping of machine at intervals to scrap along the sides of machine. 

Automatic retraction
Allows cable to be stowed away quickly & conveniently.  

Easy Fill
Mixer stops at the back when filling, ensuring the ingredients enter the bowl instead of falling onto the mixing tool 

Easy Pour
Comfortable handles & a convenient spout on the bowl for simple pouring of creams & easy removal of doughs

Extra Large
One of the largest bowl (5.4L) on market

enable easy cutting of cheese, fruits, vegetables and etc using the continuous-feed shredder that comes in 4 different cutting disc. - See more at:
