Homemade Laadi Pav egg free | Mumbai Style Dinner Rolls need not take hours to make, my recipe here takes less than 2 hours to hit the table, warm and soft, to be enjoyed with some butter or as it is. I personally enjoy baking these beauties when I make Pav Bhaji or Misal Pav. Nothing like some fresh Pav/ dinner rolls with a spicy bhaji or Misal to mop up!! This pav tastes exactly like the pav we get with Vada Pav in Mumbai!!

Homemade Laadi Pav egg free | Mumbai Style Dinner Rolls are no rocket science. They just need some basic techniques and you’ll be sorted. The four major constituents are…

Yeast – I use active dry yeast which needs proving (that’s when you dissolve the yeast with warm liquid as mentioned in the recipe for 6-8 minutes). If you use instant yeast, then that can be added directly to the flour. Either of these ingredients are easily available and they both work just fine.

Flour – Bread flour is used in most recipes from the West, however I’ve not been able to find any around me so I simply use All Purpose Flour. Bread flour has more protein and hence churns out taller and chewier rolls/ breads. All Purpose Flour will give you slightly shorter and less chewy rolls/ breads but the taste will be excellent.

Hydration – The dough for any sort of rolls/ bread needs to be hydrated just enough to be slightly tacky (sticky), just barely though. Adding way too much flour can result in stiff dough which in turn make stiff, dry rolls/ breads.

Measurements – Just scoop out the flour with the measuring cup and level it flat. Always use some extra flour to knead th dough just incase if the dough becomes too sticky.

Let us start baking some Pav/ dinner rolls.

Take 1/2 cup of warm milk in a glass or bowl, add the yeast & sugar. Stir it lightly. Set it aside for 10 minutes to let the yeast bloom. (Note that if the milk is too hot, the yeast won’t bloom. So be careful with the milk. If the yeast doesn’t bloom, start again).

See the first picture above, the yeast has bloomed really well. It almost overflowed on the kitchen top.
Next, see the second picture above. For making the dough add the flour in the bowl, season with salt.
Add the butter and slowly add the yeast mixture.
Do not add all the yeast mixture at one go as we may end up with a very gluey and wet dough.
Keep adding a little bit at a time and make a dough.
Add the rest of the warm milk too, slowly and keep kneading. We may not need all of the milk, so use it as and when you feel the dough drying up.
The dough needs to be tacky and not extremely sticky. remove the dough on the work surface.
Knead for about 8-10 minutes.
You can add some more flour if it’s the dough is still too sticky and again knead it well. The longer you knead it, the smoother and softer it will be.
Smoothen the dough with more butter.
Once the dough has become smooth, place it the bowl for it’s first rise/ prove. I gave it approximately 45 mins or so.
See the third picture above, the dough almost tripled after 45 minutes.
Then I gently punched down the dough and released the air within.
I, then greased my hands and divided the dough into 8 equal parts (used a weighing scale for this).
I greased the baking tin and placed the divided dough in it. Brushed each portion with butter.
Then I left them for the second rise/ prove for 30 mins.
Preheat the oven at 200’c for 10 mins. Place the tin on the middle rack and bake the Pav for 20 mins @ 200’c using both the upper and the lower heating coil/ rods/ elements.
Please note every oven works differently hence adjust the temperature and duration according to that.
This is whatย they looked like as they came out of the oven! Brush them with some melted butter if you like.

Rustic Pizza Pinwheels

Everyone loves Pizzas! It’s true…I haven’t ever come across anyone who doesn’t ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can have it everyday! It’s the oozing cheese along with a tangy pizza sauce that really makes all the difference for me….and not to forget…a really good pizza base ๐Ÿ˜Š

Yes…nothing tastes worst than a chewy, rubbery pizza base…no matter how good your sauce or toppings are!! The base or the crust, must have the perfect balance of flavour, airiness & should be light! That is obviously achieved by using yeast in the right proportion & proving the dough with great care. And I have finally perfected the recipe for a perfect pizza base! Learnt the trick from A Spicy Perspective! A few trials & errors have taught me something very important – proportion. It’s the key to getting perfect results! I was so driven to perfect it…that I finally bought a proper kitchen weighing scale too ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ….something that I had been putting off for almost an year!

The results are for you to see! A perfect crust with soft, pillowy texture within… I have used this recipe almost thrice now & I am happy each time! So I thought of making something which was lying in my Pinterest folders for the longest time ever! Pizza Pinwheels! I did my take on it and made a bit Rustic..! Hence, Rustic Pizza Pinwheels!

Pinwheel Pizza Rustic Pizza Pinwheels Pizza dough recipe Easy recipe for pizza dough Easy homemade pizza pinwheels No-fail recipe for homemade pizza pinwheels Italian food Fool proof recipe for pizza dough Recipe for homemade dinner rolls

The recipe for the base is adapted from Nita Mehta’s cookbook with a slight change in the ingredients & proportions as well. I did watch many YouTube videos to understand the kneading bit over the last few months!! ๐Ÿ˜€ So, to make the Pinwheels happen, I followed the recipe for the base & then worked on it with some sauce & fillings of my choice! Pizzas can be so versatile…just play with the toppings…infinite options๐Ÿ‘ŒI like my pizza simple…you can easily alter them as per your preference…you can add non-veg fillings as well..or keep it simple with just the sauce & some cheese ๐Ÿ˜„ Let’s get started with the recipe….

๏ธYield: makes 8-9 large pinwheels

Equipment: 1 large mixing bowl, a small bowl, a fork, a rolling pin, a sharp knife, measuring cups/ spoons, baking tray, cooling rack.

Ingredients for the base:

2 cups plain flour (Maida/ APF, 1 cup is approx 130 grams)

some extra flour to dust

2+1/2 tsp dry active yeast (1 tsp is approx 3.5/ 4 grams)

2 + 1/4 tsp sugar

3/4 cup warm water (you should be able to dip your finger comfortably)

2 1/2 Tbsp oil + extra for greasing

1 tsp sea salt (use regular salt if you don’t have sea salt)

Ingredients for the filling:

1/2 cup pizza sauce ( I used readymade)

1/4 cup eggless mayonnaise

1/2 tbsp garlic powder (optional)

1 tbsp mixed Italian herbs

sea salt to taste (use regular salt if you don’t have sea salt)

4-5 tbsp grated mozzarella cheese

4-5 tbsp chopped veggies of your choice (I used capsicum & sweet corn)

Method for the base:

Take warm water in a bowl, add the sugar and yeast to it. Cover it and leave to prove & froth for 10 mins in a warm place. Next, in a large mixing bowl, add the flour, 2 1/2 tbsp oil, salt to taste. Now add the entire proved yeast mixture & using a fork mix everything together to make a sticky dough. It will be very sticky but should not be falling apart at all. Now, sprinkle some flour on a work surface, and drop the dough on it,sprinkle some more flour over the dough. Using your palms, start kneading the dough well. Add more flour if the dough feels too sticky or some water if it feels very dry. Keep kneading well for 10 mins. You will have a neat, non-sticky ball of dough. Knead it for a couple of mins more. It should all look like this.

Now, grease the mixing bowl which you have kept aside & place the dough in it, cover with a lid or cling film & set aside in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours to prove. It should be double or more than double in size after proving. It will look like this.

In the meanwhile, pre-heat the oven at 210’C.

Now, punch down the dough, and knead for a min. Then again sprinkle some flour on the work surface & using a rolling pin, roll the dough in a rectangular shape. The thickness should be about 6-7 mm. Dust it with some flour again. Now leaving an inch space on all four sides, spread some pizza sauce, top it with mayonnaise, then the garlic pwd, Italian herbs, salt, grated cheese & some veggies of your choice. Flatten them out carefully. And start rolling from one end, carefully so that the dough doesn’t tear or the filling shouldn’t spill out. Seal the edges by pinching them together. Next, using a sharp knife, cut pinwheels of about 1 1/2″ thickness. Make sure the fillings don’t spill. Grease your baking tray with some oil. Place these pinwheels carefully a little apart from one another.

Bake these for 25 mins @ 210′ C using both upper and lower heating rods. If you see that they are turning too dark, lower the temperature as each oven is different. Once done, remove from the oven & cool for 5 mins on a cooling rack. Serve them warm with any dip/ sauce of your choice! My hubby & I dipped it in some garlic butter…it was pure heaven! ๐Ÿ˜‡
