Baozi (large stuffed dumplings) being prepared for baking in an indoor market in north east Beijing , specialising in regional produce. The dough is very loose, similar to pizza dough and the filling in this case is veggie – not sure what kind. Baking is done on an AGA-style covered hot plate brushed with oil. Bottled gas or electricity is used for heating indoors in Beijing and charcoal or bottled gas in the street.
