2. Mix the flour and mielie meal together with 15ml salt in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the yeast mixture.
3. Working in gentle, circular movements from the centre outwards, slowly bring the dry ingredients into the middle. Then add the sunflower oil and 250ml of warm water.
4. Knead the dough for 10 minutes and leave it to rise in a warm place for 30 to 45 minutes until double in size. Knock it back to get rid of the air.
