Pav Bhaji Rolls


Whole wheat flour                            – 1 cup
All-purpose flour/maida                   – 1 cup
Active dry yeast                               – 2 tspoon
Milk                                                  – 1 cup
Butter                                                – 2 tbspoon, melted
Sugar                                                 – 1 tbspoon
Salt                                                    – 1/2 tspoon

For brushing:
Butter                                                – 1 tblspoon, melted


Add sugar to the milk and heat it slightly till it is warm. It should not be hot, if you place your finger in it, you should be able to bear the heat.

Add the yeast, mix once and let it rest in a warm place, preferably in a closed oven till it foams up and becomes creamy. Then the yeast is activated and ready for use.
Take the wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt and butter in a large mixing bowl.

Mix well till the butter is well incorporated and the flour becomes slightly crumbly.
Add the activated yeast and combine well. The dough will be very sticky and messy at this stage, but it is perfect for our rolls.
Flour your work surface and knead the dough for about 5-10 minutes till you get soft and smooth dough.

Place it in a greased bowl and cover with damp cloth or cling film (make sure it is air-tight) and let it rest to rise for about 1 hour.

After an hour, the dough would have doubled or tripled in volume. Transfer it to your work surface and roll it in square. Now cut them into 12 equal pieces.

Roll balls out of them and place them close to one another on a greased baking tray/plate. Let it rest again for another 30 minutes.

For the brushing, warm the butter together till the butter melts. Brush this over the risen balls and bake it in a pre-heated oven at 170°C  till they turn golden brown.

Remove from oven and brush them again with butter. Let them cool, this might take about 15 minutes.

Serve them for pav bhaji or for burgers. My kids loved them as burgers with soya keema patties!!
