Pav buns..(Tanghzong method and eggless )

By shanobiju  

June 28, 2016

These buns are extremely soft and it melts in the mouth . I used fresh cream instead of butter , Tanghzong method is followed . It gives a good rise and makes the buns more lighter .

  • Prep: 1 hr
  • Cook: 20 mins

Ingredients

For the tangzhong

2 tbsp All purpose flour

1/3 cup Milk

1/4 cup Water

Ingredients for the dough

2 cups All purpose flour

1 tsp Instant dry yeast

1 tbsp Sugar

1 tsp salt

7 tsp Fresh cream

1/2 cup Warm milk

5 1/2 tbsp Milk powder

1 tbsp Oil

Directions

Direction for the tanghzong

1Mix milk , water and flour well without any lumps .

2Heat it on low flame. Let it boil until thick . Keep stirring .

3Turn off the heat and let it cool . Cover it with cling film and keep it aside .

For the dough

1In a bowl ,add flour ,yeast ,sugar,salt ,fresh cream and milk powder .

2Mix all the ingredients very well .

3Add milk to the roux / tanghzong and mix very well .

4Add the roux /milk mixture into the dry mixture .

5Mix all the ingredients very well . Knead well for 5-6 minutes . Dough will be sticky .Do not add extra flour .

6Add oil and knead for further 4-5 minutes .

7Shape it into a ball , Apply oil on the dough and transfer it into a well oiled bowl , Cover it with a cling film and wait for the first rise .

8Wait for the dough to double in size .

9Gently puch it down and knead for a minute or two .

10Divide the dough into nine equal pieces . Each piece weigh around 55 gms . Line a 8 x 8 " square tin with parchment paper or grease the tin well . .

11Apply milk using a brush .Cover it with cling film and wait for the second rise .

12Meanwhile pre heat the oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes with both the rods on . Cover the tin with aluminum foil and bake for 13-15 minutes with both the bottom rods on , Now remove the aluminum foil and apply milk /butter / egg . Place it back in the oven (without the aluminum foil ) and bake for 5 minutes until the top is evenly brown .

13Transfer it to a wire rack and apply butter well.

14Allow it to cool well .

Hi Shweta,
The bread will be dense if you over knead it.Cover the baking pan with aluminium foil while baking.I always bake at 180 degrees C.

I tried the recipe. Followed every step. Proofed it till the dough sprang back when pressed. Around 40 min each time. Baked it at 200c in my microwave on convection mode, but it stil turned out dense. Dunno where I went wrong. Had active dry yeast, so used 2.5 tsp as you mentioned.

Hi,I tried this recipe..it came out good but while baking after removing foil it took another 15-20 min to get brown color on top and u wrote 5 min…why mine took so much time.

Hi Shano,

Dear Maam,
I usually bake my cakes using convection mode, but in recipes that asks to cover with aluminium foil, my cakes turn up uncooked (even tried making buns, but failed). Would I succeed if I baked without covering with foil?

Dear Shano
For baking bread do we use bottom rod or both rod ..pls clearify

Shano Biju

July 6, 2016

Vaishali , Bake mode is diffrent from grill mode . The buns should be baked in toast mode .Both the rods get heated up .
If bottom rod alone heats up ,it is bake mode . For grill mode,only top rod gets heated up ..I use MR40L..

Vaishali

July 5, 2016

I have a question. …
U say both the rods ….baking is only lower rod n grill is both top n bottom in my oven .do you mean but breads to bake on grill mode???
