The fan fare for all things Korean is no stranger to us today. Right from the Korean language and K-dramas to Korean culture and music, people have bonded over their love for Korean food too. Moreover, the Korean boy band, BTS has also become a rage among young adults and middle-aged so much so that they refer to themselves as the BTS army. You would find a plethora of shops and stores selling the Korean merchandise as well as those hot and fiery noodles. Don’t you remember the chilli oil noodles that went viral on Instagram? That was a Korean trend too. 

Seems like the celebrities and their families have also been caught by the Korean fever. Recently, Arjun Kapoor’s sibling, Anshula Kapoor took to her Instagram to share her Sunday binge with us. Her stories comprised of a box of buns and it was captioned, “Happy Sunday To Me” along with a sticker which read Carb Overload. In the caption, she mentioned how these are the “best Korean buns in the city”. Here take a look at her soft buns.

 The buns are sliced from the centre and filled with grated and melted cheese along with some herbs on top. They look absolutely delicious and tempting, especially because of the cheese drooling from it. That gives us an insight into the fact that maybe there’s hidden a Korean fan in the Kapoor family too. Did you know that Korean bread comes in the shape of buns? The buns can be stuffed with anything, ranging from cheese, matcha and chocolate called mochi bread to red bean paste stuffed Gyeongju bread. Infact, even the Korean garlic bread comes packed in the shape of a bun that is stuffed with cheese, garlic and herbs mixture. 

Have you tried Korean buns yet? Here are some recipes to make at home. 

1.  Korean Egg Bread 

This may taste like a muffin to you at first but it’s actually bread. The bun-style Korean bread is a winter favourite and a street snack. The bread in dunked with eggs and butter and the soft bun-like texture makes it taste sweet and salty at the same time. 

2.  Korean Garlic Cheese Bread 

This is a pull-apart kind of bread. The bun is sliced into four to six parts from the centre. The hollow portions are then filled with a garlic, melted butter and herb mixture. Then grated cheese is added on top and it is baked.
