Paav : Indian Dinner Roll

One of the things I missed the most living in USA is Paav, the typical indian bread made of maida or all purpose flour. Some of the best food, Paav Bhaji, Vada Paav, Dabeli etc etc need it. Usually we use burger buns instead of Paav. Surprisingly it never occurred to me that I should look it up and try my hand at it. Once again i think its the fear that it might be difficult to recreate the recipe, or that I don't know the secrets of the bakers in India..Recently I joined a group on FB where Indian women from out of India are connected, they share recipes, cookign tips, home remedies and many more things. On this group, I found paav recipes that motivated me to make it.

This barbecue mushroom pizza recipe tastes just like my favourite Smokin Joes Pizza. Tried to look up the exact name but they don't have it on the menu anymore :(
Bigger reason to be able to make it at home and savor the flavours of my dental school days.

This is time I decided to make the crust at home too. The recipe i used it from Perfect Pizza Crust post of Dinner a love story blog..The only difference is the amount of water and that I used a lot of whole wheat flour.

For the crust:

2 cups whole wheat flour1 n 3/4 cups all purpose flour2 n 1/2 tsp yeast3/4 tsp salt3/4 tsp sugar2 cups water

take all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, begin gathering the flour adding water in sm…
