  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  7. Form the buns by transferring dough back and forth between hands until you have a large disc (approximately 8-10 cm in diameter and 0.5-1cm thick).

  8. Place buns on baking sheet and bake for 15-16 minutes on one side and then flip with a large spatula and cook for another 4-6 minutes (they should be brown on both sides and hold together easily).
