Take yeast, 1 tsp of sugar in a bowl. Add in 1/4 cup of warm water and set aside for 5 mins till it foams up.
Take flour, sugar, salt in a bowl and mix well using a fork.
Make a well in the center, pour the yeast mix in, milk, melted butter and mix using the fork till it clumps to the fork.
Now start kneading the dough for around 5 to 10 mins till it really smooth and supple. When you press the dough using your finger, it should bounce back.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and set aside for an hour or hour and half till the dough is doubled in size.
Now take it out and punch back the air. Knead it again.
Now divide into small balls.
Take a ball, flatten it and roll it lightly into a circle. Spread some nutella over it. Bring the sides and pinch the ends together.
Now roll it into a elongated oval shape carefully. Make slits in the center.roll it carefully and bring both the ends together, this will create a pattern on the slit.
Arrange it in a parchment lined baking tray. Cover and set aside for 30 more mins.
When the bread is rising, Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and oil it well.
Now crack open a egg in a bowl, add few spoons of water to it and whisk well using a fork. Brush this egg wash over the buns.
Now bake it in a preheated oven for 15 mins.
Remove it and let it cool.
