Your favourite Pav Bhaji in the Keto avatar – a must try recipe.

Keto Pav
150 g Almond Flour
30 g Coconut Flour
37 g Ground Psyllium Husk (Isabgol)
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoon Baking Powder or 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 

2 teaspoon Vinegar
1 tablespoon Olive Oil or any Refined Oil
1 cup hot water – temperature like 40 C

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Lay a baking tray with butter paper.
2. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients. 
3. Add vinegar, olive oil, and stir in the hot water. Combine for a minute or two with a wooden spoon, the water will absorb gradually, drying out the mixture to create the bread dough (It should stay a bit soft and sticky but you should be able to form a ball with your hand).
4. Set aside 10 minutes to let the fiber absorb the liquid. 
5. The dough should be soft and easy to divide into 6 small balls.
6. Roll each small ball between your hands and place them one by one on the baking tray.
7. With a brush, brush the top of each bread ball with a bit of water.
8. Bake 40-45 minutes at 180 C. (For best results, you can place the tray on the bottom rack of the oven for 30 minutes, then swap to the top level of the oven for 10-15 extra minutes).
9. Fully cool down on a cooling rack. 
10. Cut in half and grill on a tawa with Amul butter.
