Turn the mixture out on a clean surface and knead until smooth, 2 minutes. Dust the surface with some flour if the dough is still slightly sticky. This can often result due to humidity differences in different parts of the country.

If you prefer, you can trim the dough to neaten up the edges. Starting from one of the longest sides of the dough, roll the dough up fairly tightly. Cut the dough into 8 pieces that are roughly 3.5cm to 4.5cm in width.
