Soft and Fluffy Pull Apart Buns
A new post after a long time.
Today's post is about Pull Apart Buns made with yeast, haven't yet started on the sourdough journey :-( Actually there's some yeast left in my freezer and I want to use it up before I get into sourdoughs. For the initial rise, I refrigerated the dough overnight and the next day, shaped and gave a second rise at room temperature.
In India, these pull apart buns are called 'pavs' and are usually served with a very popular Mumbai street food called Pav Bhaji, bhaji essentially being a mixture of vegetables that is cooked with a mixture of spices and tastes just amazing. Traditionally, these buns are made with all purpose (plain) flour rather than bread flour, and so that's what I decided to go with.
The texture was very light and fluffy as you can see in the image above. Overall I was pretty happy with the final result, just need to add a little more salt next time.
