I have tried many types of breads and buns, this bun tasted yum and also a healthy version. This time I tried with half and half, that is half wheat flour and Maida flour, so its taste was not the typical bakery flavour but good eatable, my Dh who is a picky eater like it , that means it good, it’s totally a vegan recipe ,so let’s go to the recipe.
Preparation Time: 30 minutes.
Idle Time: 2 hours
Cooking Time: 30
Makes: 6 buns
What you will need
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup Maida/self raising flour
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
2 tspn yeast
1 tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil + 1 tsp for brushing
1 cup Luke warm water (see notes)
How to make
First prove the yeast, so in bowl take water let it be Luke warm, add sugar once the sugar dissolves, add yeast and let it poof. In another bowl take the flour add salt and mix well, the add the yeast mixture and mix well and make it into a soft dough, then add the oil and mix well and cover with a cheesecloth and let it rise mine took 30 minutes to rise. Then take the dough punch it and take out the air and kneed it well, the more you kneed the better bread. Once your done with the kneading divide the dough in six equal parts and place it in a greased tray coved with a cheesecloth and let it rise again for another 45 minutes , mine took 45 minutes to rise. Then bake it in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes at 200 degrees. Then once its done brush it with the oil and its ready to serve.
Adding Luke warm water may vary, also the flour you can add if feel the dough is sticky.
Milk can also be added instead of water or half water half milk can also be added.
Flour also you can fully use maida, instead of half wheat and half maida.
You can also make these in medium sized buns instead of pav buns.
