These pav buns are exceptionally soft and is as light as a cloud . Fresh cream is added instead of butter and is eggless ...

  • Prep: 40 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins

Ingredients

2 cups All purpose flour

2 tsp Instant dry yeast

1 tbsp Sugar

1 tsp Salt

7 tsp Fresh cream

3/4 cup Warm Milk

5 1/2 tbsp Milk powder

1 tbsp Olive oil

Directions

1In a bowl mix flour, sugar , yeast , milk powder , salt and fresh cream . Mix well . Add warm milk . Knead for 6 -7 minutes . Add olive oil and knead for another 3 - 4 minutes until it is smooth and elastic . Knead the dough into a ball shape . Place it in a well oiled bowl and cover it with cling film . Keep it in a warm place for the first rise . Let it proof till it is double in size . Punch down and divide it into eight equal parts . Take a round baking tin , grease it with oil and place the balls into the tin .Cover with cling film and wait for the second rise .Pre heat the oven at 200 degree C with top and bottom rods on . Gently brush the dough with milk and cover the pan with aluminum foil . Place the baking tin on the lower rack and bake at 200 degree C for the first ten minutes . Then turn off the top rod and bring the temperature to 180 degree C . Continue baking for another 10 minutes . Now take the pav out . Remove the aluminum foil and brush it with milk or butter . Bake for another 3 - 4 minutes ( without the aluminum foil ) with the top and bottom rod on until the crust is brown in colour . Transfer it into a wire rack . Apply butter or oil and let it cool for aleast 2-3 hours .

I used instant dry yeast directly . Use good quality yeast for excellent result . It is always advisable to weigh the dough to get even sized buns . Each portion of dough weigh 52 grams . I used 7 1/2 inch round tin . Oil the tin well before placing the dough .

Shano Mam; thanks a lot. I used to bake pav in my convection mode in the microwave. By God’s grace I got a bigger otg MR 60 litres. But didn’t know about the settings for baking your otg settings mentioned here has saved my day. Tried my own recipe but without the settings it would be toasted bread. Thanks a lot. God bless you and keep your good work going….

Hello Shano. You have used 2 tsps of instant dry yeast. So I must use 4 tsps of active dry yeast? Isn’t that too much?

Hello Shano…I have been admiring your recipes and contributions in HBJ and today decided to do some bread baking. Just want to know if this can be baked in a microwave as well? I do not have an oven.

Shubhada..Mistake from my side..Will edit it..My apologies..
It is instant dry yeast..Aluminum foil helps to retain moisture in buns and hence it will be softer..
