  6. Then flour your work surface well and divide the dough into 8 pieces.
  7. Form the dough into round buns, and place them in a baking tray lined with baking paper, leaving space between them.
  8. Sprinkle with a bit of flour and let them rise for another 30 minutes, covered with a cling film.
  9. When ready, brush them with the egg carefully without deflating them and sprinkle with a bit of sesame.
  10. Finally, bake in a preheated oven at 190 degrees for 20 minutes.
