Substitutions for ingredients:
- Whole wheat flour can be used instead of all-purpose flour for a healthier option.
- Almond milk can be used instead of regular milk for a dairy-free option.
- Chopped almonds or cashews can be used instead of pistachios.

- Add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the dough for a spiced flavor.
- Use diced pineapple instead of mango for a tropical twist.
- Add 1/4 cup of shredded coconut to the dough for a more exotic flavor.

Tips and tricks:
- Make sure the milk is warm, but not too hot, or it will kill the yeast.
- If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour until it becomes manageable.
- To make the buns extra soft, brush them with melted butter before serving.

Storage instructions:
Store the buns in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Reheating instructions:
To reheat the buns, wrap them in foil and heat them in a 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes.

Presentation ideas:
Serve the buns on a platter with fresh fruit and a dollop of whipped cream.

Sprinkle the buns with powdered sugar or drizzle them with a glaze made from powdered sugar and milk.

Serve the buns with a cup of hot tea or coffee for a delicious breakfast or snack.

Suggested side dishes:
- Fresh fruit salad
- Yogurt parfait
- Scrambled eggs

Troubleshooting advice:
- If the dough doesn't rise, it may be because the yeast is old or the milk was too hot.
- If the buns are too dense, it may be because the dough was overworked or the yeast was not activated properly.

Food safety advice:
Make sure to wash your hands and all surfaces that come into contact with the dough to prevent the spread of bacteria.
