  • yeast - 1 packet, dry
  • water - 1 cup
  • flour - 2 1/2 cups
  • sugar - 1 tsp
  • salt - 1 tsp
  • oil - 3 tbsp
  • pekmez
  • sesame seeds - for rolling


Sift the flour. Add the yeast, sugar, salt and oil. Pour in the water and knead a soft dough.

Leave the dough to rise. Tear 14-16 balls from the ready dough. Make each ball into a strip, and the strip into a bagel, in turn.

Boil salted water and put the bagels in the boiling water. The bagels are ready when they rise to the surface.

Dissolve the pekmez in water (1:1) in a bowl. Dip each bagel in the mixture, then in sesame seeds and bake them in a heated oven dish, laid out with baking paper, to a golden crisp.

If you don't have pekmez, you can substitute it with honey.
