New shapes of pau

PAU shaped like mushrooms were sold in Putrajaya a few years ago and it quickly went viral.

This same viral sensation was recently discovered at a Ramadan bazaar along Jalan Prima 5/1 in Taman Puchong Prima.

A stall selling dim sum offers the mushroom-shaped pau as well as those shaped like chilli, prawn and corn.

Niesrif Afifah, 19, who helps at the stall, said the shape of the pau reflected its filling.

For example, the prawn shaped pau is filled with prawn sambal while the chilli-shaped ones contain sambal ikan bilis.

The pau has been on sale at the stall for two years.

They are priced at RM3.50 for one and three for RM10 while the dim sum is sold for between RM1 and RM4 depending on their sizes.
