Today's recipe's Home made Pav Breads/Dinner rolls. You can serve Pav Bread along with spicy Pav Bhaji Masala, Channa masala or simply slice and apply  jam n butter.Once you started making this pav at home,am sure you will love it!!Adapted from Vahchef.

Maida- 3 and half cup
Melted Butter-3 teaspoon
Salt -1/2 teaspoon
Sugar- 1/2 teaspoon
Warm water- 3 and half cup
Yeast- 1 teaspoon


Add yeast and sugar in to the warm water. Mix it well, using fork. Cover and rest for 15 mins or until yeast proofs.

Once the yeast proofs, add in salt and give it a mix. Then pour  the mixture  in to the Maida, mix and knead it well. Make in to a nice dough.

Add butter while kneading  the dough.

Now, cover the dough with lid. Rest it in warm place for minimum 1 hour.

 After one hour, the dough becomes double in volume. Punch the dough in all side, again knead it for 1 min. Then make a medium sized roundels. 

Preheat the oven in 350f. Arrange it in a greased tray. Cover the tray, rest it again for 30mins in warm place.

Brush the roundels with milk  before keeping in to the oven. Doing this gives a nice golden color on top. Then bake it for 30 mins to 40 mins or until you see golden color on top.

Transfer the bread in to the wire rack ,let it cool down for 15 mins.

That's it our Home Made Pav Buns are ready. Toast the bread with little bit of butter and serve it with Pav Bhaji Masala.

  • While arranging the roundels in trays, dust the dough with some flour to avoid stickiness.
