  3. Make a Cut: Using a sharp knife, make a shallow cut in the center of each bun to create a decorative pattern.
  4. Brush with Egg Yolk: Brush the surface of each bun with beaten egg yolk to give them a shiny finish.
  5. Sprinkle with Sesame Seeds: Generously sprinkle both black and white sesame seeds over the top of each bun.
  6. Bake: Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F). Bake the buns for 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Serve: Allow the buns to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy them warm or at room temperature.
