Bun Pao/Pav

Bun pav is another variety of bread/pav from Mumbai bakeries. It's a soft bread studded with orange candied peels. When I came across some recipes of Portuguese Sweet Breads, I thought, they may turn into decent bun pavs. I chose the recipe with minimum amount of butter and eggs. Next time, I will try to see if I can even make it eggless.

Bun Pav
Recipe inspired by
1 cup warm milk
1 egg
2 tbsp butter
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3 cups organic bread flour
1 package dry yeast

1. Add all the ingredients in your bread maker per manufacturer's instructions.
2. Choose "Dough" cycle.
3. Take the dough out and place in a greased container. Cover with a wet cotton napkin. Allow to rise for 1 hour.
4. Punch it down. Make 10 balls. Place them in a greased baking tray. Place a raisin or orange candied peel on top of each roll.
5. Cover and let them rise for 1 hour.
6. Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake for 15 - 16 minutes.
7. Serve with warm milk or hot tea.
Note -
1. Instead of making rolls you can make a bread loaf. For that, choose sweet bread cycle of the bread maker instead of dough cycle.
2. Before using the dried orange peels on the rolls, I would probably soak them in orange juice for next time. I put them directly from the bag and they turned out crispy and not soft.
