Notes

  1. For cream either you can use cream accumulated from milk after boiling it or use Amul fresh cream.
  2. Milk powder and cream are necessary to add if you want to have a great texture.
  3. In case you are using instant yeast instead of active dry yeast, the quantity will remain the same.
  4. Preheating is must have for an even baking.
  5. If your pav buns are browning too fast, cover them with aluminum foil and continue to bake.
