hi Yi,
Tried this but when i tried to roll it by hand, it wouldn’t roll like what you pictured here even if i followed your instructions. I tried to use 2 scoper so that it will not be too messy in the hands. What do you think is your technique in rolling it perfectly? In addition, i don’t have to use a spoon to flatten them coz they flatten themselves and they unfortunately stick together. Thanks in advance for you reply on the 2 matters of concern.

Hi, the dough should be less sticky after you chill it in the fridge for a while. If the the dough is still sticky, you can also dust your hands with some flour and roll the dough. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
