A mother from Sprowston has set up a bao bun delivery service after finding a sneaky way to make her son eat more vegetables.

Kelly Zhu, who lives in Manor Park, started Xian's Little Kitchen in March this year.

The traditional Shanghai pan-fried bao buns are made with pork and Chinese leaf filling.

Ms Zhu said: "My six-year-old son used to be a fussy eater that hated vegetables but now I hide them inside the bao bun.

"Since then I've been perfecting the shape and practising to get them just right - all of his schoolmates loved them and it's from there that I got the idea to set up the business."

To make the bao buns, Ms Zhu prepares and marinates the fillings on Friday and then makes the pastry and cooks and delivers them on Saturday. 

Ms Zhu delivers around her local area in Sprowston and collections can be picked up from her home address.
