Bagels, Never thought i do these kind of breads in my kitchen, from this month i joined the club of Baking Partners, and challenge was chosen by Swathi Iyer..When she gave the link, i was super surprised on the recipe, the one which i never seen, never tasted, even for the taste i have to goole myself, how does bagels taste like??

This is what my knowledge in Bagels.. This Bagel Buns are Originated in Poland, Traditionally they are shaped by hands in the form of ring, from a yeast dough.. which the hated rings are boiled in water syrup(poaching liquid) and then baked. and when i tasted this bread this chewy, soft, crunchy outside, and the next day the out side is soft.. And the bagels are topped with Poopy seeds, Sesame seeds or with sunflower seeds.. And these are about the new bread which i collected from Wikipedia..
When i bake this bread Jess was around me, he asked me repeatedly amma, is this vada you are making?? he recognise the shape with vada.. pretty boy, i said this is bagels, its a kind of bread, he didn’t accept till end he got a piece of bread of taste.. and i used white sesame seeds for my bagels, i don’t have any other choice to take.. the one i really enjoyed while cooking will be bagels.. i have the excitement of trying a new bread recipe..  And this is my “Day 37 of B365″
