well, to be honest, i am not a huge fan of homemade pav or ladi pav as i do get freshly baked dinner rolls near to my place. moreover, these rolls do not have any additional preservative and hence i always end up buying it instead of baking at home. however, i have got a lot of requests to prepare ladi pav bread at home using a pressure cooker and hence i thought of posting it as a video post. well in this post i have used the traditional oven to bake as the size of my pressure cooker and pav tray was not matching. perhaps i would post it next time once i have access to a small tray. anyway, i had to bake it thrice to get the right temperature, time and softness so this is a tried and tested recipe.

furthermore, some important tips, suggestions and variations for the soft and spongy eggless ladi pav recipe. firstly, the key to soft pav is the kneading of plain flour dough after it is mixed with yeast. give a proper 10-15 mins of kneading and use both your hands. you can also use the bread or atta maker to knead the dough. secondly, once the dough is properly kneaded, allow it to rest for 60 minutes so that raises and gets the shape. in addition to it, once the dough is shaped to balls and transferred to the tray, it has to be rested again. finally, before putting the tray to baking oven, do not forget to brush the balls with milk or butter to get a nice colour.
