You haven’t mentioned water in your ingredient list but you mentioned it in the first step of the recipe. I have no idea how much water to use so I just played it by ear. My dough was not oily because there was only 1/4 cup vegetable oil in it which had mixed in with the egg as you instructed. My dough was sticky, I’ve put it in for proving now so we’ll see what happens!
