Baking Bread in Sand #2

Detail of interest: the flour dusted depressing. This video is made up of a series of stills. We do lose some technical information, particularly regarding how the ash and embers are swept out from the sand. But there is one detail in this video I haven’t seen in others. The bottom of the heated depression is dusted with flour prior to the bread being put down, presumably to reduce the amount of sand that might adhere to the finished bread. I haven’t noticed this on any of the other YouTube videos. Does anyone know whether this is a common practice or perhaps something just done for the tourist demonstration?
