Knead into a dough
Add flour, egg, and water to a large bowl. Using a spatula, stir everything well to combine. Then knead with your hands into an elastic dough. Leave the dough in the bowl for about 15 - 20 minutes, at room temperature.TipYou can make this step up to 1 day ahead. Leave the dough in the fridge for up to 12 hours.
roll and bake
Dust your working surface with flour. Roll the dough into a rectangle, approximately 2 mm or 0.1-inch thick. Cut the dough into 8 long strips. Poke holes in each stripe of dough using a fork. Transfer the dough onto a baking sheet - don't line it with parchment paper. Place in the preheated oven. Bake for 4 minutes at 200 °C / 390 °F. After 4 minutes, turn the dough and continue to bake for 4 minutes.
