4 cups of flour – the higher the protein content, the better
2-2.5 cups of water
A better dough recipe (65% hydration):
For every 1000 g flour, add 600-650 ml water. Start with less water and add just enough to form a soft dough.
Note, you may need less water for your dough depending on your flour and climate. I Knead for 5-10 minutes and then rest for 2 hours or more completely covered in water. Drain and add water. Massage and knead the dough for 3-4 minutes under water to remove the starch. Repeat the process until the water is mostly clear – typically about six times. Let it rest 10 minutes. Cut into three strips, braid and then knot the dough as tight as possible.
