I saw the recipe of Pav Buns at Vardhini's kitchen, suddenly baked these this evening! :) Buns came out so nice. Thought of storing them and make pav-baji tomorrow, but we had it with evening tea and almost finished them! :)
I just followed her recipe except the amount of sugar. As a sweet lover, I wanted the buns to be little sweet, hence added some more sugar. You can see her recipe here.
All Purpose Flour-11/2cups
Instant Yeast-1/2 of a 7oz pack
Luke warm water-2tablespoons
Add the yeast and a teaspoon of sugar to the luke warm water, mix well and keep undisturbed for 10 minutes. By this time the yeast solution will be frothy.
Heat the milk for a minute in Microwave, add the butter, and let it melt.(heat again for 30 seconds.)
Add the remaining sugar and salt to the milk+butter, stir well till they get dissolved. Let the milk to cool down a bit. Then add the yeast to the milk and mix it.
Add the flour little by litter and mix it. It will be very sticky. I added little more(May be couple of tablespoons) flour to work with.
Knead it like roti dough for 10 minutes and you will get a soft dough which won't even stick to your fingers.
Coat it with oil,cover it with clear wrap. Keep it in a warm place and let it rise for an hour.(I kept it for 11/2 hours)
Punch the dough and make 6 equal balls. Place them on a greased baking tray. Make sure that you leave some space in between the buns to raise.
After an hour the buns will rise nicely. Preheat the oven to 375F. Give a generous egg wash to the buns and bake for 20 minutes.
Soft and tasty buns are ready! Let it cool for some time and remove them from the pan. I was planning to make pav-bhaji, but could not resist! ;)
NB: I know am adding lot of snaps, but can't resist that! ;)
