Activate yeast by putting yeast and sugar in a cup

Step 1 - Activate yeast and crack egg into mixture

  • In a cup, mix 300 ml water with instant yeast and 70 g white sugar. Stir well and set aside to allow mixture to turn foamy. This will take 5 to 10 minutes.
  • After mixture turns foamy, crack 1 egg into the mixture and mix well.

Step 2 - Make and proof dough

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, ½ Tsp salt and mix well with a stand mixer and hook attachment.
  • Slowly add in yeast mixture into the flour. Keep mixing until it forms a dough.
  • Place dough on a working surface and knead for 5 to 8 minutes until dough is smooth.
  • Place smooth dough in a large bowl and cover with cling wrap. Set aside for 1 hour to let it proof. It should double in size.
Proofing allows yeast to develop flavor and flour to develop gluten.

  • Place proofed dough on a lightly floured working surface and knead again for 3 minutes.

  • Divide dough into 3 equal pieces.

    To make smaller versions of roti golok, divide and roll the dough to preferred size.
  • Roll each dough into a long tube and cut in half. You should have 6 long rolls of dough.

  • Combine the ends of 3 doughs together and braid it together. Bring the right dough over the centre dough. Bring the left dough over the centre dough and repeat. Pinch the ends together to secure the braid. Do the same with the other 3 doughs.

  • Place braided doughs on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Cover with cling wrap and let it proof again for 30 minutes.
