Transform Bread Rolls Into Elegant Leaves With This Dough Technique
Those who love making bread rolls need to try the social media trend of transforming rolls into elegant, leaf-shaped loaves using only a singular chopstick.
The first step in this tricky process is rolling the dough into a flat circle. It should be about 5 or 6 inches in diameter and ideally around a quarter-inch thick.
Then cut the circle into four even quarters and fold each of these quarters from the bottom up, stacking them together so they will stand upright.
The critical step in this process is pressing down the singular chopstick in the center vertically to create the leaf's central vein.
Finally, turn the entire creation to lay the chopstick horizontally and fold the sides of each piece of dough up to form the leaf's shape.
