Use more warm water if necessary.
The dough should be quite soft.

Place the dough in a greased tin, cover with a damp cloth, fit a cover and place it in the sun or a warm place to rise till it becomes double in bulk (say for about two or three hours).
After the dough has risen, add salt and knead for five minutes more; shape into two loaves and place in greased loaf tins (6 inch x 3 inch x 4 inch).
Cover and place the tins in warm place for half an hour.
Uncover and brush with milk and melted butter mixture.
Cover and bake in hot (210°C) oven for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes bring down the oven temperature to 180°C and bake 20 to 25 minutes more.
