Laadi Pav is nothing but round rolls of white bread termed as Laadi Pav commonly In India. A Laadi mean 6 pav 0r 6 bread together. Laadi Pav also called as Pav or Pao or Indian White Bread Dinner Rolls In India. I have been eating Pav since my childhood and quite vividly remember. During teatime dipping Pav with Butter into tea and relishing Pav. Eating Masala Pav with delicious Pav Bhaji hmmm yummy. Also eating Pav with Chicken Curry Or Mutton curry. I do remember binging on Wada Pavs in college days and school days.
Guess Pav is an integral part of Goan and Maharashtrian Cuisines. Even across the belt of Maharashtra people love eating Missal Pav, Wada Pav and Bhurji Pav. Bhurji Pav is nothing but scrambled egg along with Indian White Bread. For people who don’t know what is Missal. Let me tell you Missal is combination of some Sprouts, masalas, Onion and Farsaan. Even Missal Pav is one my favorites.
Any Street Corner Or Street Food Or Junk Food In India comprises of Pav. Pav is easily and readily available everywhere. Hygiene factor is not so great in most of the Bakeries who make this pav. Hence I thought of making these wonderful Laadi Pav at home. You would get Hygiene + Nutrition = Healthy Pav….. Hope you liked my attempt towards equations lol 🙂
I have used 80% wheat and 20% refined flour. So more fiber and nutrition you see. To be honest I didn’t keep the dough more longer to rise. As I was a little impatient to try these Laadi Pav. Yet my Laadi Pav – Indian White Bread Dinner Rolls turned out great. If I would have waited for dough to rise I am sure this would have been even more greater. Also was curious to try this Laadi Pav as it was my first attempt. I couldn’t click more snaps as it got over so soon!

- Use fresh yeast for any Bread. If it is not getting frothy in a few mins when mixed with water. It means the yeast is not active.
- You could use oats, Raag Flouri, Cornflour etc to make your buns more fibrous and healthy.
