Ingredients

Instructions

  • Mix the sugar, 1/2 cup warm water and the yeast in a mixing bowl and set aside for about 10 minutes until the mixture starts to froth, indicating the yeast is alive and well.
  • Sift all the flours and baking soda into the bowl. Knead on low speed in a stand mixer or by hand for about 3 minutes, trickling in 1 cup of water until you have a dough that's smooth but slightly sticky
  • Add the oil and continue to knead until the oil has been absorbed by the dough, about 1 more minute.
  • Now place in an oiled bowl, turning over once to coat all over with oil, cover with a kitchen towel, and set aside for 2 hours until the dough has risen.
  • Punch down the dough and divide into 9 or 12 balls, depending on how large or small you want your pav.
  • Shape them into a slightly rectangular shape by pulling at the sides of the dough and tucking under on all four sides.
  • Place the tolls in a rectangular 9 X 13 inch baking dish smeared with oil and lightly floured, or on a cookie sheet, close enough but not touching each other. Let the rolls rise for an hour. They will join at the ends when they have risen, forming a slab, or laadi in Marathi
  • Preheat the oven to 370 degrees. Place the pav in the oven and bake 23 minutes.
  • Brush the tops with a little oil, if desired, for a pretty, glossy look.
  • Remove to a rack and allow the rolls to cool before breaking them off.
