Baking Rolls Without Yeast: How To Make A No Yeast Bread, Atta Pav Bun 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.
yeast free paav recipe with atta


yeast free garlic rolls with whole wheat
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.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.

So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively rep…
