Roll each portion into a round ball.

Hold the dough balls, covered for about 8 minutes.

Place each of them on the counter until we have finished the rest of the reels and then take the first roll that we have shaped.

Lengthen the dough by pulling the dough and then rolling it out.

When it’s about 30cm long, keep it aside until we’ve finished all six.
