Melted Butter: 1/4 cup
Minced Garlic: 2 tbsp
Mixed Seasoning: 1 tsp
Fresh Coriander Leaves: 2 tbsp
For Bun Filling:
Soft Buns: 3 pieces
Cream Cheese: 1/2 cup
Salt: To taste
Sugar: 1/2 tsp
- Preparing the Coating:
In a bowl, combine the melted butter, minced garlic, and mixed seasoning. Stir well to create a flavorful and aromatic mixture. The combined fragrance of butter and garlic will add depth to your buns.
- Adding Freshness with Coriander:
Finely chop fresh coriander leaves. Incorporate them into the butter and garlic mixture, infusing it with a burst of refreshing flavor. Set this coating mixture aside for later use.
- Creating the Bun Filling:
Begin by preparing the bun filling. Take your soft buns and carefully slice them open, creating a pocket for the cream cheese stuffing. This is where the magic begins!
- Indulgent Cream Cheese Filling:
In a mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese until it becomes smooth and creamy. This sumptuous creaminess will be the heart of your bun.
- Balancing Flavors:
To the cream cheese, add a pinch of salt. This will help balance the sweetness of the cream cheese and enhance the overall flavor profile.
- Touch of Sweetness:
Gently incorporate half a teaspoon of sugar into the cream cheese mixture. This subtle sweetness will complement the savory elements, creating a harmonious contrast.
- Filling the Buns:
Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill each bun’s pocket generously with the cream cheese mixture. The creamy, flavorful filling will be a delightful surprise with every bite.
- Coating the Buns:
Now comes the exciting step of coating the buns! Dip each stuffed bun into the prepared melted butter, garlic, and coriander mixture. Ensure that the coating covers the buns evenly, imparting that irresistible aroma.
- Baking or Toasting:
At this point, you have the option to either bake or toast the coated buns. Baking will result in a softer texture, while toasting will add a slight crunch to the exterior. Choose the method that appeals to your preferences.
- Serving and Savoring:
Once your buns are baked or toasted to perfection, it’s time to serve and savor. The moment you bite into these buns, you’ll experience the delightful combination of the creamy cream cheese filling and the savory, aromatic coating.
