Homemade Spongy Pav Buns / Dinner rolls

Last saturday night, i was thinking about different recipe to do for dinner. My husband too bored of rotis and dosas, so thought of pav bhaji for dinner. I have already prepared pav bhaji but at that time i had pav buns bought from store, so this time i tried to prepare pav buns in home and it came out so well. Preparing pav buns is not a rocket science, it is very easy to prepare. I hope you will try these pav buns in home instead of buying it from store.

Total time:2 hours and 20 mins

All purpose flour - 3 cups
