Yeast-Free Atta Paav: How To Make A No Yeast Bread Recipe


Call these sweet bread buns or yeast-free atta paav, this recipe is a keeper for those looking for a yeast alternative for baking. Well, personally, I tend to avoid the use of baking powder and soda in most of recipes, but as of now, this yeast-free recipe gets its perfect sponge and shape from these two leaveners. Let's try out this yeast-free atta paav unless we get to a point where we can make these without raising agents. The challenge is tough, but not impossible. The feat looks tough, but culinary experiments can lead to any direction. I can't say it quits unless I get one yeast-free recipe without raising agents too. Fingers crossed.

Anyway, so coming back to the no yeast atta paav recipe, I got a request in this regard a few days back. So decided to take a plunge into making yeast-free buns. Did the recipe disappoint?

Well, if you are used to enjoying market food, then this yeast-free recipe may not be for you.
If you are used to relishing maida buns that use yeast, then this atta paav may not please you.
If you have health on your mind, then you can go ahead with the no yeast paav bun with atta.
Ask me, and I would choose whole wheat flour over maida for any recipe.

Yeast, in general, is not bad for everyone unless you have a yeast allergy, histamine intolerance, are a Jain, or have a stomach disorder. Some people with celiac disease can avoid yeast too, besides gluten.

Ingredients
1 cup measures=175 ml
2 cups- whole wheat flour
2 tbsp- dehydrated milk powder (I use sugarfree skimmed milk powder from Patanjali)
2 tbsp- oil
1 tbsp- honey/jaggery powder/sugar
1 tomato (I just added for the sake of it)
1/4 tsp- black salt/rock salt/mineral salt
1/2 cup- curd
1/2 tsp- baking powder
1/4 tsp- baking soda
1/4 cup- water/milk at room temperature (more or less depending on the dough)
2 tbsp- roasted flax meal (powdered and roasted flax/alsi - this is a substitute for egg)- or you may use 1 boiled potato/sweet potato

How to make yeast-free bread Paav with whole wheat flour


Let's make a no yeast bread with whole wheat/atta.

Sift whole wheat flour with baking powder and baking soda two-three times.
Keep aside.
Add curd and flax meal to a processor/mixer jar.
Add salt, honey, and chopped tomato.
Blitz the processor until everything looks well combined. This mixture should be 1 cup. Measure it at this moment. Add more curd if it is less.
Remove this wet mix in a wide bowl.
Slowly drop atta into the curd-tomato bowl.
Use your hands to fold in one direction. Mix gently until everything looks incorporated.
Add water little by little if the mix looks dry. We want a sticky dough - slightly thicker than cake batter - similar to cake rusk dough.
Cover with a wet/muslin cloth for 20-30 mts.
Preheat oven/convection/airfryer to 180 degrees for 10 mts. Airfryer can be preheated for 5 mts only.
Use your wet hands to work with the paav dough, which should look risen by now.
Try to work with it until it retains the shape of a sticky dough. However, make sure the dough looks elastic when you stretch it.
Rub oil on your hands and make small balls. Place each ball in a greased and dusted baking pan. Dust the pan with dry flour and then place each ball.
You can top each ball with sesame seeds - black or white.
Bake/airfry for 25-30 mts at 180 degrees.
Remove from the oven once done.
Cover with another wet cloth for 30 minutes.
Allow the paav to cool down under the wet cloth. This will help retain soft texture.
Enjoy yeast-free paav with whatever you wish to.
Mom enjoyed it as is. Dad had it with tea, saying these were like sweet bread buns.
I relished it with homemade amla jam.
PS: The atta paav without yeast will surely be a little different from maida yeast paav.
But I consider it a good option for jain recipe followers (substitute honey with raw cane sugar) and those looking for a yeast-free paav bun recipe.
You can make a burger with the whole wheat paav yeast-free and use potato cutlets as a filling.
Do not forget to try out my yeast-free garlic bread rolls.

The yeast-free paav recipe can be used to make a no yeast bread loaf too. If you are still wondering whether it is possible to make whole wheat paav without yeast, you ought to give it a try.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
