Even if they do come out with a few imperfections, that's the beauty of making dough from scratch! Each bun will be unique and the process is so satisfying, you'd want to give yourself a pat on the back when they're cooked.

To serve

  5. Dust a clean surface and rolling pin and roll out the dough into a rectangle until it's about 1/2 a centimetre thick. Fold the dough in half and repeat another 2 times.

  6. Using the longest edge of the rectangular dough, gently roll it forming an even cylinder.

  7. Divide the dough into 16 even pieces.

  8. Using the palm of your hand, squash the flat surface of the dough piece so it forms a circle then using a lightly dusted rolling pin, roll out the dough to form an even circle about 10cm wide.
