Dust the dough and knead for 8-10minutes until the dough turns soft and elastic.Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it.
Let it rise in a warm place until the dough gets doubled about 2 hours.
Grease a 12cup muffin pan generously.
Punch down the dough on a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough into 36 equal pieces.
On a clean surface, roll each piece into a smooth ball and place 3 balls,side by side in each muffin cup.
Cover the muffin tin loosely with plastic wrap and keep asie until doubled in size for 20 minutes.
