- When the dough has doubled in size, start forming.
- Gently press the dough 2-3 times to release the gas.
- Take out the dough and cut it into pieces of desired weight (*3), and form into a ball.
- Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough so that it is thicker at the front and thinner at the back (*4).

*1 Using 300g of flour, the number of doughs that can be formed after the second fermentation is as follows; 18 pieces of approx. 30g dough 12 pieces of approx. 45g dough 9 pieces of approx. 60g dough 6 pieces of approx. 90g dough *2 For ease of forming, I recommend dividing the dough into 45g or 60g portions. *3 I rolled 12g of chocolate onto 45g of dough. The chocolate is quite thick, so be sure to roll the dough out enough and cut chocolate into good sized pieces before rolling. When I used half of the chocolate (6g), it was easier to form, but I was disappointed when I ate it because there was not enough chocolate. *4 It may sound complicated to write that “the front is thicker and the back is thinner”, but if you use a rolling pin and roll it out all the way to the back, it will look like this. The key is to roll it out all the way to the edge. *5 Normally, you roll out the dough from the front to the back, but in this case, roll out the dough from the back to the front, from the top of the triangle to the bottom, so that the top doesn’t widen and the bottom gets wider.
