How to Make Homemade whole wheat pav buns

  • Add the yeast, sugar and salt to the lukewarm water, give it a stir and keep aside for 5 minutes, allowing the yeast to turn foamy.
  • Take the flours in a large bowl and add the foaming yeast water and oil. Knead a soft dough.
  • Arrange the dough in a large greased bowl and keep in a warm place for an hour until the dough doubles in volume.
  • After an hour, punch down the dough and knead again.
  • Make 6 medium-sized balls from the dough and arrange one by one in a greased mould. Keep aside for an hour in a warm place.
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Brush the breads with milk and bake in the middle rack for 15-20 minutes until a golden brown crust forms over the bread.
  • Turn off the oven and let the pavs cool.
