Ladi pav (dinner rolls)




  • cups plain flour
  • 2 teaspoon active yeast
  • 3 tablespoon milk powder
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 4 tablespoon butter at room temperature
  • 1¼-1½ cup lukewarm water approximately
  • 2-3 tablespoon milk


  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, yeast, milk powder, salt, and sugar
  • Add butter and rub it well with the flour
  • Slowly add water to knead the flour. Keep kneading for 8-10 minutes until you get a soft, pliable dough
  • Cover the bowl with a cling wrap. Let the dough rest in a warm place until double the size (45 minutes to an hour)
  • Once the dough is rested, place it on a lightly dusted surface. Punch the dough to remove air and knead again for 4-5 minutes
  • Pinch out a lemon sized ball of dough, roll it into smooth balls and place onto the baking dish. Repeat with rest of the dough
  • Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest for another 20-30 minutes
  • Preheat oven at 200 C (390 F)
  • Once the pav is rested for the second time, brush some milk onto them
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden
  • Remove from the oven and spread some butter onto them
  • Cool on a wire rack and serve
