Add yeast and sugar into 1 cup of milk in a bowl. Leave for 5 minutes. Stir to dissolve.

Knead until the dough becomes elastic and a little sticky, about 8-10 minutes.

Punch down, cover and let dough rise again until doubled in size (about 45 minutes).
Cut it into 20 pieces and roll them in ball shape. Cover to prevent drying out.
