Bagels are one of the most delicious type of bread and looks like Doughnuts :) My husband was actually wondering if I am preparing doughnuts or what!!!
While looking to recipes online, at first I thought it will be tough, but then that was the whole challenge to finish it :) And here are the results :)
|The perfect ones have come out and We had it next morning applying butter on it.|
With the help of two recipes and few modifications of mine, I was able to get successful on making these cute small size Bagels with flavor of Basil, Oregano and Sesame Seeds.
So Let's quickly look at Ingredients:
- 3 1/2 cups - Maida or Whole Wheat Flour ( I used Whole Wheat flour)
- 1 cup or little more - Water
- 3 tbsp - Sugar
- 2 tsp - Instant Yeast
- 1 1/4 - Salt
- 1/2 cup - Water (To prove Yeast)
- 2 tbsp - flax seeds (To be dissolved in 4 tbsp of water)
- Sesame Seeds
- Basil leaves
- Oregano leaves
- Milk for brushing
|I have used King Arthur's 100% Whole Wheat Flour and not the regular chakki Aata :) Mix all the dry ingredients along with just 1 tbsp of Sugar into it. (Salt, Sugar)|
|Flax Seeds Mixture dissolved|
|The 1st Rise :) :) :)|
Dust some flour on a plate and knead the dough for couple of minutes. And then make small balls like of Parathas
Joint all the sides of the dough and then swirl it to make a round dough.
Exactly round shape dough like this!
|Top it up with the seasonings of your choice and brush it with the milk. Don't worry they won't come out while in the baking :)|
|Bake it for 20 minutes in a preheated oven. For first 10 minutes one side and then flip it the other side for another 10 minutes.|
Apart from butter, try using Philadelphia Jalapeno Cream Cheese, you will be amazed to eat it :) :) :)

Happy Baking :) :) & Happy Bagels :) :)
