Homemade Ladi Pav RecipePrep Time : 10 mins + 1.30 hour | Cook time : 10 minutesRecipe Category : Breads/Main CourseRecipe Source : My Diverse KitchenMakes 16 PavsIngredients
- All purpose flour 3.5 to 4 cups
- Instant Yeast 1 tsp
- Salt 1 tspSugar or Honey 1 tbsp
- Milk 1 and 1/2 cup
- Butter,softened 1 and 1/2 tbsp
- Melted Butter 1-2 tbsp for brushing
You can prepare the dough using stand mixer or by hand too. I used my Stand Mixer.
Put 3 1/2 cups of flour, the yeast, salt, sugar in a big bowl and whisk together. If using a food processor you can do this in that, by pulsing everything a couple of times.
Add the lukewarm liquid to the dry ingredients and knead (by hand or in the processor) till a soft and elastic dough forms.
You will have to add a bit more of flour (a tbsp at a time) while kneading, to achieve this. Do not be tempted to add more flour, or your rolls will become tough.
Place the dough in an oiled bowl, rolling the ball of dough till it is coated with oil. Cover the bowl with a plastic or cling wrap and allow it to double in volume (should take about an hour).
After that, Lightly knead the dough and divide equally into about 16 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place on a greased rectangular baking tin.
Cover them with a towel and allow them to rise for 30 minutes.
Bake them at 220C (425F) for 10 minutes till they rolls have risen and started browning.
Take them out of the oven and quickly brush them with melted butter and bake them for another 5 minutes till the tops have browned well. Take the rolls out and let them cool on a rack.
If using honey instead of sugar, add it to the warm milk and it to the flour mix.
To the same recipe, I added 1.5 tbsp of Milk Powder.
