Pav is Indian yeasted bread. The most famous snacks include pav bhaji, Vada pav, misal pav, masala pav etc..
Origin – This bread “Pao” was introduced by Portuguese when they ruled Goa {India} in 15th century. Later in migration it this bread was brought to Mumbai & it became famous over there. {Sources: Holiday Goa}
Recipe – The recipe is simple & doesn’t involves eggs. I used milk in this recipe instead of water & kneaded it for 10mins before & after rising. Making small dough balls will allow the bread to be soft & smooth after it was baked.
