7 cups all purpose flour
7 tsp butter melted
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 ½ cups water (luke warm)
7 gms yeast (Instant dry yeast)

Dissolve yeast and sugar in the warm water and let stand five minutes, until bubbly.
add salt and mix with the flour. Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Now add the melted butter and knead for another 2-3 minutes. Place bread dough in greased bowl, and cover it with a plastic wrap. Leave it to rise in a warm place for 1 hour. The dough will double..

Punch down dough. On floured surface and knead for another minute. Place the rolls on greased cookie sheet sprinkled with flour. Cover and let rise until doubled, 45 minutes. Brush the risen rolls lightly with eggwash. This will give shine on top to the pav.

Bake at 180C or 400F for 45 minutes, until the bread is deep golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped with fingers. Remove from cookie sheet and let it cool on wire rack. Yummy soft Pav is ready to eat.

I have tried this recipe. Its a great one - especially for us in the UAE, as we dont get pav here but sweetened buns and thats not at all fun.
My attempt at pav turned out just right.
