Pav Bhaji is not only the favorite food of Maharashtra; it’s also favorite to my family though we are from south.

Even in Maharashtra, the Bhaji only made at home the Pav is brought from Bakery. But, I bake the pav at home. (just fresh……how fresh ? 30 to 60 min fresh !)

Pav is called dinner rolls, in English. When, scrolled the “Dinner Rolls” on the blog, my husband said “it’s not dinner rolls, its Bun!”

I too puzzled, but Wiki helped me to prove I am right (as usual, always). This is how Wiki differentiates the dinner rolls vs bun.

Dinner Rolls : A bread roll is a small, often round loaf of bread for one person. Also, commonly used to make sandwiches.

Bun : A bread roll of various shapes and flavorings, typically sweetened and often containing dried fruit.

Okay, without anything further ado, let’s bake the Pav.  Oh, I am going to make only Pav not Bhaji  

Ingredients required : 1 cup of Luke warm water   ;    2 ¼  tsps of yeast    ;   1/4 cup Sugar   ;   1 beaten egg    ;    2 tsps of  salt       ;    1 cup  of  milk  (warm)     ;   115 gms  of melted butter +  little for brushing   ;   5 cups of All purpose  flour

In a standing mixing bowl (of your Kitchen aid) with dough hook, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let it sit until lightly foamy, then stirring at low speed, add sugar, egg, salt, warm milk, and butter one by one and mix well.

Now, set at medium speed and slowly add AP flour, once, combined well, roll out to floured surface and knead dough for about 5 minutes.

Place dough in buttered bowl, cover with damp cloth and allow it to rise until double in bulk, (may take about 1 hour, depends on the temperature)

Punch down dough and form dough into equal size balls and place them on lightly oil the square pan and again cover with damp cloth and allow it to rise for 30 min. brush the rolls with remaining melted butter.

Bake in 220°C (425°F) preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
