Pav bread is the Indian version of small plain bread rolls. According to one version, the bread is known as pav because you get it in a set of four and then you break off each mini loaf as you eat. The Pav means one-fourth in the Marathi language. The second version says that the art of making this kind of bread i.e. Pav was brought to India by Portuguese people. Before this, Indian people made only unleavened bread like chapattis. Today let us see how to prepare this Whole Wheat Pav Buns.
Pav is usually made with all-purpose flour. Nowadays as everyone is running towards healthy life style, I too thought to try a healthy version of pav. So I made Pav with Whole wheat flour. I used 75% whole wheat flour and 25% all-purpose flour. Also used instant yeast instead of active dry yeast.
Regular yeast should be put in lukewarm water before using. This will activate the yeast and help it to work. This is called proofing.
Instant yeast can be added directly to the recipe ingredients.
Pav made with whole wheat flour is little denser than the all-purpose flour. Also, the color of pav is light golden in color than normal white. The first important step is to mix all the ingredients well, and you have to knead the dough at least for 15 minutes to bind and get the dough consistency. Initially, it would be very sticky, at this stage, do not add any flour or oil. Just keep kneading till it turns to dough consistency. The next step is resting time of the dough which is also very important to get the spongy pav. You have to mix, knead, proof the dough, again knead, divide it into equal balls, place on the oven tray, again let it proof, then bake.
