Ladi Pav is a hearty homemade bun, which is very famous in Mumbai. This feather-soft ladi pav is best had with a spicy bhaji or vegetable curry, but you can also serve it as a sandwich lined with chutney and packed with potato vadas.

Old-timers will go to the extent of preparing the yeast also at home to make Laadi Pav but this version made with instant dry yeast is more common and very effective. You will love the outcome. It is so soft and tasty, you will look forward to making ladi pav – and of course, eating it – again and again!

Once the dough of the ladi pav has been shaped and put in the tray, make sure it has proved (that means doubled in size) very well. That's the key to make a perfect eggless ladi pav. Make sure you butter or oil the ladi pav once its immediately out of the oven to ensure it stays soft and does not dry up.

Popular recipes served with ladi pav are Vada Pav, Dabeli, Kaanda Bhajji Pav, Misal and Pav Bhaji.

Ladi Pav, Eggless Homemade Laadi Pav Buns recipe with step by step photos

For activating the yeast

  1. For preparing ladi pav, we first need to activate the yeast. For that in a deep bowl, take milk. The texture of eggless ladi pav comes out soft and fluffy on using milk.
  2. Add 2 tbsp warm water. Don’t forget to check the temperature of water by dipping your finger. Water that's too hot can damage or kill the yeast.
  3. Add the sugar. Sugar has multiple roles in bread making. One being it acts as a food for yeast and helps in creating carbon dioxide and alcohol. Sugar also enhances the flavour of the bread, gives a crumbly texture & golden crust to the eggless ladi pav.
  4. Add the instant dry yeast.
  5. Mix well. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  6. After 10 minutes, you will see a frothy layer which indicates our yeast has been activated and is ready to use. If it does not, then throw and restart or get another batch of yeast. If you use flat yeast, you will get dense and sticky ladi pav.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Q. The recipe turned out good in terms of taste, however the texture wasnt soft as expected. The dough was hard, what should i do? 
    The texture of the dough should be really soft to make Eggless homemade Ladi pav buns. Knead the dough well with adding enough water to make a soft dough. Hydration is the key in achieving a soft Ladi pav. 
  2. Q. My yeast did not bloom as shown in the recipe steps. What could have gone wrong? 
    Yeast with time looses its strength, make sure the yeast you use is fresh. Also, make sure you use lukewarm water to bloom the yeast, hot water will kill the yeast and stop the blooming process. Do not mix the yeast with salt while kneading the dough as it will stop the proofing process of the bread, and the ladi pav wont rise. 
  3. Q. Hello Mam , today i tried this recipe. Everything looked all good till baked my buns. I don’t know what went wrong but my bun turned hard after baking. I baked them (400 f) for 20 min and properly followed the kneading and proofing technique. A.  Hi, When it baked, ladi pav turns hard, you need to apply butter or oil over it and cool it, and then, slowly it would become soft.
