Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients

FOR THE TANGZHONG –

  • Cup All purpose flour
  • ½ Cup Milk

FOR THE DOUGH –

  • 2 ½ Cups All purpose flour
  • Tangzhong All from above
  • 3 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Instant Yeast
  • Baking soda A pinch
  • ¼ Cup Yogurt Plain
  • 3 tablespoon Butter
  • ½ Cup Luke warm water More or less might be needed

Instructions

TO MAKE THE TANGZHONG –

  • In a saucepan combine the all-purpose flour and the milk and whisk well to break any lumps.
  • Cook it on low to medium heat until the mixture thickens and forms a semi-solid dough.
  • Remove from flame and cover with a cling wrap making sure that the wrap touches the top of the tangzhong. This prevents from skin forming on the surface.
  • Allow the tangzhong to cool to room temperature. This mixture can be made a day ahead and refrigerated as well.

TO MAKE THE DOUGH -

  • Add the baking soda to the yogurt and whisk well.
  • I made the dough in the stand mixer. To the bowl of the mixer add the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix well and make a well at the center.
  • Add the yogurt mixture, all of the tangzhong, and about ½ cup of lukewarm water and mix to form a sticky dough.
  • Add the butter and then knead until you have a soft and smooth dough (about 8 minutes).
  • Place the dough in a well-oiled bowl, wrap it with a plastic wrap and let it rise until double in volume (about 1 – 1 ½ hours).

SHAPING THE PAV BUNS –

  • Grease a 9 x 13 baking tray and keep it aside.
  • Once the dough has doubled, punch it back gently, and then divide into 4 equal parts.
  • Now divide each quarter into 6 pieces to get a total of 24.
  • Roll each piece into a taut ball and place it in the greased baking tray, barely touching each other. Wrap with cling wrap.
  • Let it rise again for about an hour or until double in size. You will notice that the balls puff up and fill in space well.

BAKING THE PAV BUNS –

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Brush the top of the buns with milk and bake for about 20 – 25 minutes or until the buns are golden brown.
  • Brush the baked buns with butter as soon as they come out of the oven.
  • Pav Bun Tangzhong
  • Let it cool on a wire rack and serve!
