Soak the yeast in 3/4 cup of  warm water. Allow to dissolve for 5-10 minutes. If the yeast did not rise, throw it away and get a good one. Preferably, use instant yeast.

Cover with a kitchen cloth and keep in a warm place to rise for at least I hour. Punch the dough, to deflate the air in the dough. Sprinkle some flour on a board and drop the dough.

Remove the pan from the fire, allow to cook for a minute. Then add the knots in the garlic and toss well or brush the knots with the garlic sauce.
