Laadi Pav/Eggless Pav Recipe .

Today's post is Mumbai's famous pav .Pav Maska thats bread and butter with cup of tea is a famous breakfast for most of them here in Mumbai. People love having  kadak aka Brun pav and Soft white bread also called as Pav. 6 breads/loaves together makes one laadi hence its called laadi pav.
I have grown up eating this pav with kheema/vada or even a simple pav patties /masala pav.I have been to many cities but  I have not seen or tasted breads like we get here in Bombay. Well these breads are cheap enough and readily available in bakeries and general stores but when you can bake your own bread why wait to buy breads from out.
I have been enjoying baking breads and buns past few years and the joy of having fresh baked breads straight from the oven is incomparable.So here's the recipe to make soft fluffy pavs at home.

3 1/2 cup flour/APF/Maida
1/2 to 3/4 cup Water
1/2 cup Milk
3/4 tbsp  active dry yeast
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp milk powder
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp oil

Add yeast and sugar to lukewarm water and leave it to bloom for 3-4 min.
You will see it nice and frothy .
Mix flour,salt ,milk powder together in a bowl add the yeast to this and knead.
Add melted butter and milk to the dough and continue to knead .
Slowly add oil to the dough and knead till the dough is soft smooth and elastic.
Cover the bowl with a cling wrap or with a damp cloth and allow the dough to rise .
It may take 1 hr to 1 hr 30 min or may be 2 hrs depending on the climatic condition and the room temperature.
Once the dough is well risen /double in size Punch down the air.
And knead for 3-5 min.
Divide the dough into balls and shape it into rolls.
Place the shaped balls/rolls close to each other in a well greased pan.
Cover with a damp cloth and let it rise for 30-45 min till it doubles in size.
Pre heat the oven for 10 min at 180 degree Celsius.
Brush the pav/buns with milk/egg wash.
Bake the buns/pav for 20-25 min .
Remove and apply butter for the shine and allow to cool on wire rack.
Enjoy fresh hot Pav with pav Pav Bhaji /Misal Pav/Kheema Pav or any curry of your choice.
You can see for yourself how soft and fluffy it is.
