10. Divide the batter in a plastic bag into 3 parts. Take out a part and place it on a plate where starch power is widely spread. (Keep the rest of the batter in a plastic bag to prevent it from drying it out)

11. Make the batter long and divide it into 6 parts with a spatula. Flatten one of them in a 10cm-diameter circle.
