2. When a "cap" appears on the surface of the dough, you can start kneading the sponge dough. Pour warm milk into it, gradually sift the flour and salt. While the dough is liquid, we mix it with a fork, and when it starts to thicken, we knead it on the table. We put the dough in a bowl and let it stand warm for 1.5-2 hours. Don't forget to cover the bowl with plastic wrap so the top of the dough doesn't dry out.
