To make approximately 11 pav.
All purpose flour / maida - 2 and half cups
Yeast - 2 tsp
Sugar - 3 tsp
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Milk - 1/2 cup
Water - 1 cup
- Take water and milk in a bowl. Heat this mixture in a microwave just for 40-45 seconds till it becomes little warm. Add in yeast and sugar. Mix well and cover it up with towel. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes. If it turns frothy, then yeast is activated.
- Sieve the flour and add salt to taste. Start kneading the dough by adding little yeast water at a time. Dough should be very soft and sticky. Add olive oil to it and again knead the dough really well. Whole process of kneading will take around 20-25 minutes. Once, you are finished with kneading, apply some oil on top and transfer this dough to big pot. Cover it up with plastic paper and let it rest in warm place for about 1 and half hour.
- Dough will become triple in size. Just punch the dough little bit to remove air in it. Make a small balls and keep them in a greased pan. Cover it and let them raise for half hour. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Beat one egg and give a egg wash to raised buns. You can use milk instead of eggs. Bake the pav in a oven for about 25-30 minutes. Let them cool down before you serve it.
