    Hello, thanks so much for sharing this recipe. Just have a few questions. Can I substitute the palm oil for the filling and the bread with sunflower oil? In step 1, it says “Add a little waterm oyster sauce” — may I know what is ‘waterm’ please?

      Hi Jacqueline, yes you can certainly replace the palm oil with the oil of your choice. As for the oyster sauce, thanks for the spotting the typo and we’ve corrected it. Happy Cooking! 🙂
