Homemade Pav Bread | How to make Pav buns

Homemade Pav Bread is very easy to prepare at home. This is my third time making this Pav bread. It is so soft, fluffy and much better than the store brought ones. My kids love this bread very much and they take it to school also for lunch.

  • Plain flour/maida-2cups +3tbsp for dusting
  • Milk-¾ cup + 2tbsp
  • Butter-4tbsp
  • Sugar-1tbsp
  • Salt-1tsp
  • Active dry yeast-2tsp
  • Oil-3tbsp


  • Take a bowl, add warm milk, yeast, sugar and stir well. Cover and rest it for at least 5-10minutes or until you see the frothy.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with dough hook, add flour, salt, oil and butter. Mix on low speed. (You can mix the dough with your hands without using a stand mixer)
  • Then add the fermented yeast mixture and start mixing on low speed, until all the ingredients combine together. Then increase the speed from medium to high speed for a minute or until it forms into a dough.
  • Cover and rest the dough until it doubles in its size. (it took 11/2 hours for me)
  • After the dough rises, punch the dough and knead for another 5 minutes.
  • Divide the dough equally and roll each ball in palms to get a smooth round ball.
  • Grease the pan with oil and place the balls. Cover it with a cling film and rest again for the second time to raise. (it takes 40-45 minutes)
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C
  • After that brush, the balls gently with melted butter and bake at 200°C for 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and allow it cool. Then transfer the pav on the wire rack to cool. Now again apply the melted butter the second time to get the shiny gloss.
  • Enjoy tasty and delicious Pav with your favourite sabji or curry.
