  3. Add salt to the flour, add pepper, stir and make a hollow in the middle. Add the raising yeast (foam), egg, fat, and the rest of the warm milk.

  4. Knead a smooth dough and leave it covered for 10 minutes.

  8. Roll out the dough again, top with another third of the ground cracklings, and fold again.

  9. Now repeat this process once more, fill the dough with the remaining ground greaves, fold, and spread to approximately 1.5 cm.
