How to make Pav

  1. Take the milk and add sugar to it. Heat to lukewarm.
  2. Sprinkle the yeast all over.
  3. Leave undisturbed for 10-12 minutes to bloom.
  4. Take the flour and salt in a big plate or bowl.
  5. Make a well in the centre and add in the yeast mix.
  6. Start kneading the dough.
  7. It will be very soft, messy and sticky. Add in 1 tablespoon oil.
  8. The dough will start coming together on kneading.
  9. Continue kneading, just like we do for chappati dough , for 12-15 minutes.
  10. Now, gather it into a ball and take the seam side Down. ( Pic shows how the bottom seam side looks )
  11. Keep the dough in an oiled deep dish.
  12. Apply thin layer of oil on a plate.
  13. Cover the vessel with this oiled plate and keep in a warm place, like a kitchen cabinet etc.
  14. Let it double up in about 1-2 hours , depending on the weather.
  15. Gently punch to remove excess air.
  16. Bring the dough together and make equal size balls. ( Mine were 10 balls of 37 gm each )
  17. Smoothen the balls and place them in an oiled- baking tin, again seam side down.
  18. Leave Undisturbed For 20-25 minutes to proof.
  19. They will swell and stick together.
  20. Preheat the oven after 20 minutes, at 200 degrees C for 10 minutes, with both rods on.
  21. After the second rise, brush the buns with oil / melted butter / milk and pop them into the oven.
  22. Bake for 12 minutes at 200 degrees C and then for 3 minutes at 250 degrees C
  23. The top will turn golden brown.
  24. Remove from oven and again brush some butter all over.
  25. Demould by inverting on a plate.
  26. The above pic shows the base view. Leave on wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.
  27. Again invert and let stand for 5 minutes.
  28. The pav / buns are soft and fluffy.
  29. Serve hot.

My Tip:

Keep on kneading even when you feel the dough feels difficult to handle. It will come together.
