Lukewarm water

Steps

1. Prepare the bread dough as you would usually. When it has gone through the first rising, divide into 8 pieces. Cover with a damp towel so it doesn't dry out and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. Roll up the dough from the bottom of the surface. Put the corn meal on a plate. Flatten the dough with the palm of your hand and coat both sides with corn meal.
3. Arrange the dough on the hot plate and press lightly down with your hands. Cover with a lid and proof. When the dough has doubled in size, it's ready.
4. Cover with the lid and bake at 150°C for about 5 minutes. Flip over and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Then, do it over again to bake for a total of 20 minutes.
