Pav Bhaji Buns/ Dinner rolls

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.

Ingredients
All Purpose Flour-11/2cups
Instant Yeast-1/2 of a 7oz pack
Sugar-2tablespoons
Salt-1/2teaspoon
Milk -1/2kap+2tablespoons
Luke warm water-2tablespoons
Butter-11/2tablespoons
Oil-1teaspoon
Egg-1


Method
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! ;)
..... n enjoyed it with our evening tea!
:)))))))))))))

NB: I know am adding lot of snaps, but can't resist that! ;)

  9. Hi Mahi, I tried your buns yesterday. It turned out flat. What could be wrong?

  10. Hi anony,Yeast should become frothy for these recipes.You can see how much active was mine(in the 2nd photo of the recipe). If not,that might be the reason for the flat buns.

    Keep an eye on the water temperature while dissolving the yeast. If water is too hot,the yeast will die. If water is not hot enough,then also yeast won't be active.Its a little tricky part,you will get to know soon!

    Thanks for trying!Good luck!

  14. /I think egg does some magic :)/ Nope! Haven't added egg in the buns, just gave egg wash only! :)

    May be the climate plays an importnat role Raji. The day when I baked these buns, the weather was really warm and the yeasts did their job well.:)
