hi y3k,

Wah, what a nice and beautiful bread, but I am a bit confuse, why after step 3 , the bread don't need to rest before you roll it into round balls.

and after step 15, the bread only need to rest for 5 mins before going to the oven ?

Hi Loh,

Once the dough is form, do not need to rest, just roll it into round balls and rest for 5 mins. (step 3 to 5). It may take longer time to proof if the weather is not good.

In step no.(15), 5 mins is only a guild line for resting or proofing bread, it depends very much on the temperature and humidity of the weather. It takes a longer time if proof at night, or air conditional javascript:void(0)room ...

Hi Q,

Mixer's brand is not important, you can use any ordinary mixer that is suitable for bread making.
