B for Bagels

I have been missing all yummy recipes for the past few days. I was on 2 full day trainingJ
Now are you wondering why I am soo happy after the training!!
Not that it added a lot of value to my work..But I am almost certain that the last two days have definitely added at least few pounds to my weight and few mm around my waistJ
The food was absolutely sinfully delicious!!!
The second day of training I woke up and all I can think of was the lunch!! I couldn’t believe myself!! I have turned to a total foodieJ
Even now when I think about the huge array of desserts..I can’t help smiling
I almost wrote about how amazing the dessert were on the training feedback form..:-)

Lemme stop drooling over the desserts and come back to the Bagels
I made this last weekend and it was just perfect. All 6 bagels disappeared in less than an hour.[excuse the little self praise here :-)]

Here goes the recipe
Adapted from Videojug recipe here

2 cups bread flour
1 tbspn sugar
1/2 tspn salt
1 tbspn Olive oil
1 tspn instant yeast
1/2 + 2 tablespoons of warm water

To Poach the Bagels
4 tablespoon sugar
2 cups water

For dressing
Poppy seeds
Roasted sesame seeds
Whole Oats

Add all the flour, water, yeast, and sugar into the bowl of your mixer. Knead for roughly 4 minutes. Add the oil and the salt and continue kneading for a further 8 minutes until the mixture becomes smooth, elastic dough.
Remove the bowl from the mixer, cover it with a plastic bag and let it prove, for 40 minutes at room temperature.
Place it onto a clean working surface. Divide the dough evenly into six portions, roll each portion into a soft ball. Gently push you two thumps through the centre of the each ball and create a pretty big hole. Do watch the video, it really helps
Repeat the same process with the rest of the balls and place them onto the pre-lined tray.
Cover it once more with the same plastic bag and prove again for another 40 minutes.
While the bagels are nicely proving, place the saucepan onto a medium to high heat. Then add sugar and allow it to melt, to a golden sticky syrup. Add the water, taking great care not to get splattered and bring to the boil.
Turn on the oven to 200ÂșC

Gently place each bagel into the boiling, caramel water and allow them to boil for 1 minute on each side.
Dip the poached donuts on the dressing and gently press so that they
Transfer the bagels to the prelined baking tray and place them in oven to bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.
Allow them to cool down

Now don’t wait..Enjoy it with a liberal spreading of cream cheese
