Turkish Bagel

Turkish Bagel
· One cup of warm water
1,5 tsbp of powder or instant yeast
the thing is when you use instant yeast you do not have to wait it to swell up in warm water!
· 1 table spoon salt (if you want, you can add more )
· 1 teaspoon sugar
· All-purpose flour
· Roasted sesame (You can roast your sesame by yourself in a Teflon pan)
· Grape molasses + water
1. In a large bowl, put your warm water first and add yeast and powder sugar and stir them up. At least five minutes you need to wait to get them rise. When you see it is bubbling it means that yeast is ready. (yeasting temperature is the temperature that your little finger can stand in it )
2. After mixture get bubbling, add salt and flour. Flour should be in the amount that makes the dough a little stronger than earlobe.
3. We need to cover the top of the bowl to make the dough yeasting.
4. Then take some pieces as large as an egg and roll it in your palm. Next step is giving it a stick shape and then braid shape and bring two ends together.
5. Put your bagel in a clean area and wait a little to get it yeast and apply the mixture of grape molasses and water on it.
6. And apply your roasted sesames on both front and back sides of your bagels.
7. The last step is putting them in a oiled tray and put the tray in a 450F oven heated before and cook them 20 minutes. If you want their top in red, it is enough to wait two minutes in the broil.

Afiyet Olsun!
