Then cover the pot with cloth and set aside to let rise in a warm place for an hour or two. After 1 -2 hours scoop the dough out and place it onto a wooden board dusted with flour. Use your hands to flatten the dough, slightly brush with oil, then fold the dough over flatten out with hands and brush with oil again. Then again fold the dough over and form into a uniform bun and cut into two or three pieces. Each of them will be an induvidual cake.
