Pav Buns


Pav Buns are a favorite and one of the most popular dishes in North Indian Cuisine. This snack has its origin among the street foods of Maharashtra. Pav Buns are very easy to prepare. These are basically soft and puffy ‘Indian style breads’ made with plain flour and yeast. Pav Buns are ideally served with pav bhaji or any choice dishes that you prefer. Here we should use good quality yeast for best results and only limited ingredients are required. Egg and butter are required for attaining a soft texture. These Pav Buns are quite similar to Dinner Rolls but softer without a crispier texture. These type of snacks are the trend in recent times and you will discover all age groups thronging to street food corners to enjoy a lavish bite. Leave others, myself too is an avid fan of Pav Buns.

Pav Buns with Pav Bhaji are quite commonly served all over India. What excites me is the fact that these snacks do not require any artificial flavorings or preservatives. So I always end up buying these buns instead of preparing at home. Recently a friend of mine handed me the recipe and am glad I easily prepare these Pav Buns at home. Pav Buns can be easily prepared at home and your school going kids can munch on these buns for their evening snack. I would like to give a few tips for the recipe. Make sure that you knead well. Secondly, give the flour maximum time to rise so that the buns get the proper shape. Also after placing the Pav Buns in the baking tray, remember to keep it for one more hour before baking. Also after baking brush the buns with some butter for that enriched flavor and aroma. You can explore a well detailed Pav Bun recipe here.
