Homemade Soft & Fluffy Pav Buns / White Dinner Rolls / Indian Pav / Indian Bread for Pav Bhajji

Pav Buns are one of the main thing which you need as a side for  vada pav or pav bhajji.These fluffy and soft buns are so tasty with anything..You can have it on its own too..They are readily available in supermarkets , but they are quite expensive here..So I thought to make it on my own..


This is the first time I am making it, the result was quite amazing..these buns turned out so soft and spongy..I totally loved it..The smell of freshly baked buns fills your house as you baked them..There is nothing better than baking your own bread or buns..


I actually made vada pav, potato pav, onion pav using this and served it with green chutney and tamarind chutney..They are totally delicious…Will post recipes soon...You could probably stuff anything in this from chicken filling to vegetable filling and enjoy this soft buns..I actually had one by just spreading some green chutney and tamarind chutney and sprinkled some garlic chutney  over it and took my first bite, wow it was so good.. Would recommend you to try it once…So without any delay off you go to the recipe.


Hope you love this and let me know what you think..

Ingrediants:

All purpose Flour - 500 gms / 1/2 kg
Yeast - 1 tblspn
Butter - 4 tblspn melted + for brushing on top
Sugar -1 tblspn
Salt - 2 tsp
Warm Milk - as needed to make the dough

Method:

Add yeast and sugar to warm milk and mix well. Let it stand for 5-10 mins untill it becomes foamy.

Take flour in a mixing bowl and add salt in that. Mix this together so that the salt gets uniformly distributed.

Now pour the milk in this and mix well so that it forms a very soft dough.

Pour melted butter over this and mix well.Cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for 1-1/2 hour till it doubles in size..

Now punch the air out and divide into equal portions..

Take a tray or any baking pan and arrange this balls equally spaced.

Now cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 mins till it doubles in size.

Now put this in a preheated oven( 200 Degree C / 400 Degree F) for 15-20 mins untill the top turns golden and cooked.

Remove it from the oven and brush it with butter.

Remove the pav buns individually and serve it with pavbhajji  or use it for vada pav or anything.

Lakshmi said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Aarthi,
Cant wait to make these buns. I have tried making buns at home several times but the buns never turn out as spongy as they come in bakeries. Can you tell me how long you kneaded the dough?

Regards
Lakshmi

Lakshmi said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Aarthi,

Cant wait to try out the recipe for the buns. I have tried to bake buns several times but they just dont turn out really spongy as we get them in the bakery. I had a few doubts would be great if you could clarify them.

Did you use maida or bread flour?
How long did you knead the dough for?

Waiting for your reply.

Regards
Lakshmi

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Lakshmi

I used maida in this and i didn't knead the dough so long..Just 5 mins is good...

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Lakshmi and one more tip for soft buns is the dough should be very soft and not stiff...that makes the buns so soft

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

hi aarthi....
I loved your site so much...iam planning to make pav buns ....san u tell me 500gms is equal to how many cups...your buns so perfect n superb...thanks for sharing....

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

journaloframbles said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Aarthi, came across your lovely blog today. It was very nice reading all the recipes and also about you, infact I'm still going through the blog.

I recently started baking, will definitely try this. Looks amazing.

Jazz said... Best Blogger Tips

Aarti, can we use warm water instead of milk ?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Jazzyes you can use. But milk makes it even more softer

Ranga123 said... Best Blogger Tips

Ranga123 said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi aarthi.. can you tell me what kind and brand of yeast you are using in your recipes?

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi aarthi.. can you tell me what kind and brand of yeast you are using in your recipes? PLZ replay to this

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousI buy yeast from my supermarket and it is their own branded yeast. I have used bakers yeast also, it works great, you could use that too.

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Hey aarthi this is sangita I was going through your blog and I was impressed I came across your pav buns reciepe and It would be very kind of you if you tell me the exact quantity of milk to make a soft dough for soft buns2

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousYou will need around 250 ml. increase or decrease as needed

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Aarthi,

Which yeast do you use in this recipe - active dry yeast or instant yeast?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousIt is active dry yeast.

vaish said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi arthi, i tried making pav buns, but the dough did not rise as expected after I set it for 1.5 hrs :( i used eagle active dry yeast.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@vaishyour yeast is dead. Try with a fresh packet of yeast

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Priety MaheshwariThen your yeast is the problem. Your buns didn't rise much because of yeast so it is hard

Vidhya said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Arthi,
i tried pav buns from your space. The outer crust turned out to be hard and buns were dense.. i used fast acting yeast.so didnt proof. added directly to flour. where have i gone wrong? Any suggestions

Thank you

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Vidhya
Did your dough rise well. If it didn't rise, then it is the mistake of yeast. Try with different yeast. I find activating yeast before adding it in flour helps a lot.

Vidhya said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks arthi for your response. Dough has risen. Don't know where I have gone wrong.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@VidhyaAfter making the balls did you allow it to rise. And also, the dough which you made should be very soft, then only you will get soft buns..

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

May ,I use baking powder/baking soda instead of yeast..?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousNo you cannot skip yeast, it is must for this recipe.
