Bring a pot of water of to a boil. Turn off the heat.
Put your bread dough in a bowl that fits completely inside a steamer.
Place the steamer on top of the pot of boiling water. Place a piece of kitchen parchment paper on top, then the pot lid, to prevent the dough from drying out.
Then just leave the dough to rise 1 to 2 hours.
For the 2nd rising, re-heat the water and transfer it to a big frying pan. Put the baking tray with the formed dough on top of the frying pan. Cover with a flour-dusted piece of plastic wrap to prevent the dough from drying out.
If the water in the pot gets cold, heat it up briefly. ※ Remove the steamer.
Story Behind this Recipe
For some reason I can't seem to proof dough properly using a microwave! So I thought of a method that is as natural and economical as possible for proofing dough.
If you use a pressure cooker, it retains heat well so you don't have to re-heat the water.
