Whole Wheat Pav with Indian Herbs.

Whole Wheat Pav with Indian Herbs. 

I love to add lots of Herbs to my bread, so this time when I decided to Bake Whole Wheat Pav, I decided to add loads of Indian Hers like Coriander, Mint, etc. I have used Wheat flour to make you can use All Purpose flour for very soft Pav. For the recipe with AFP click here. 

Whole Wheat Flour - 3 Cups
Warm Water - 1.5 Cups
Olive Oil - 1 Tablespoon
Salt - 1 Teaspoon
Sugar - 1 Tablespoon
Yeast - 1.5 Teaspoon (1 Teaspoon Instant yeast, 1.5 teaspoon Active Dry or 3 teaspoon Fresh Yeast)
Fresh Coriander Leaves - 2 Tablespoons (Finely Chopped)
Mint leaves - 1 Tablespoon (Finely Chopped)
Green Chillies - 1 Teaspoon (Finely Chopped, adjust to taste)
Garlic - 2 Tablespoon (Peeled, finely chopped)


  • In a mixing bowl, place the luke warm water and add the sugar and stir it well.
  • To this add the Dry yeast and cover with a plate and leave it aside till it is frothy.
  • In another mixing bowl, place the Wheat Flour and Salt and add Butter or Oil and mix it well. 
  • To this add the Yeast water and knead for 8-10 minutes or till you get a smooth pliable dough.
  • Now place this dough in a oiled bowl and cover it with a damp cloth and allow it to rise.
  •  This may take 1 Hour.
  • Once the Dough has doubled, bring the dough to the top of the kitchen counter and punch it down and knead for couple of minutes.
  • Now add Coriander leaves, garlic, Green Chillies and Mint Leaves and knead it well. 
  • Then shape it into Pav and place it in a greased  tin.
  • Place them touching each other and  Cover it lightly with a damp cloth and allow it to rise for 30-45 minutes.
  • After 30-45 minutes, Bake it in a Pre heated Oven for 30 minutes at 180C and Broil for 5 minutes.
