Q. What is Grow Fit's Pav Bread?
The word “Pav” comes from the Portugese word for bread, pao. Over time, pav has become a real staple of Indian cuisine. Ladi bread is also known as Bombay pav – which is soft, spongy, flavorful with a hearty texture. Ladi means a block of dough stuck together that is sliced or pulled apart. Visually, it is similar to pull-apart bread in western cuisine. Due to changes in the microclimate, pav can vary from place to place. Some pav aficionados have their pav flown from Mumbai every day! We try our best to replicate the authentic flavour.
Q. How is it made?
Our pav bread is made using a combination of all-purpose flour which is used as a base for the dough, yeast and sugar acts as the fermentation agent. Yeast will bloom faster if it has sugar. Salt along with butter adds in for extra flavor and richness. Ladi pavs are proofed for nearly half an hour which gives it the classic elastic well moisturised dough. It is baked for 20 mins at moderate temperature (190 °C) with gluten and water to achieve a soft, amazing texture.
Q. How do I use it?
It is the Holy Grail of bread perfect as a snack or as a small meal for both adults and kids. Use it with bhaji to replace longed-for street food, or just toast with cheese / peanut butter / chocolate dip for a creative breakfast. You can eat it with misal, potato patties (vada pav), kheema, bhurji and more. If you are looking for warm, fluffy, and perfectly-proofed Ladi Pav then this for you.
Q. Why should I buy it?
Fermentation is the chemical breakdown of carbohydrate and sugar naturally found in grain flour by dry yeast to carbon dioxide causing gas bubbles to form, which has a leavening effect on dough.
In our bread making process we spend enough hours proofing the bread. This allows fermentation to occur and some of the gluten to be broken down. In return it makes it easier for your body to digest.
Q. Why should I make the switch?
Our Pav Bread is prepared using all natural and simple ingredients. It does not contain preservatives and chemicals as opposed to store-bought ones. Pav bread found in grocery stores are generally prepared using 100% all purpose flour and are loaded with way too many chemicals in order to increase their shelf life.

Q. Does it contain sugar?
Our Pav Bread dough is fermented using yeast, which needs some sugar. Sugar balances the bitterness produced during the fermentation process and lends a sweet taste to the finished product. And of course we make sure that added sugar is within its limits so you get a low sugar end product.
Q. Does it contain wheat?
Yes. Pav Bread is made with all purpose flour, has a finer, lighter texture and usually has a longer shelf life. Pav bread in addition to the day's meal helps in maintaining the energy we need to get from our diet by providing carbohydrates for energy production.
Q. What is gluten?
Gluten is a combination of the natural proteins found in wheat. They are the real workhorse of the world’s most famous bread and pastries. Gluten is essential to the bread making process as it helps bread maintain its shape and flavor.
Q. Should I avoid gluten?
If you have Celiac's disease or some other autoimmune disorder, yes you should avoid gluten. If you don't have an autoimmune disorder you should be just fine consuming gluten.
Q. Do you have gluten free options?
We do not offer gluten free pav breads on our catalog currently, though we can make them to order. Gluten is moderately added to achieve the desired texture. However, we do offer some keto low carb options that are made with grain free flour. Also we have beautiful veg and non veg steak, skewers options that are 100% safe for those staying away from gluten.
Q. Do you have vegan options?
We do not offer vegan pav bread currently. We make sure to label those breads accordingly. Please note that we are not a vegan bakery, and if you are concerned with any such problem please inquire with us before purchasing.
Q. Can we freeze it?
