2. Sift 380 g of flour into a mixing bowl, make a well in the middle, and add salt, oil, warm milk, and activated yeast.

3. Mix everything well; if necessary, you can add more flour. But not too much. The dough should be very soft, tender, elastic, and slightly sticky to the hands.

4. Lightly grease a bowl with vegetable oil, cover the dough with cling film, and leave it in a warm place to double in volume.
