Then take the dough and shape it into a ball. Cover everything with a tissue.
Wait until the dough grow and reach the double of is volume… It can take about 2 hours (it depends about weather and room temperature)
Then divided it in parts and create a little ball each pieces.
Cover all the balls with a tissue and wait until they grow again.
