Poppy seeds Bagel

I always prefer a savoury bread rather than sweet bread, especially those with crispy crust and chewy texture, example like baguette and bagel. I have never seen bagels sell in bakery shop here, but luckily I found a good recipe and I baked some today and I can’t wait to share with you, it is too good and I love the texture very much!
Poppy seeds Bagel

Recipe was adapted from Honey Bee Sweets, but I replaced sesame seeds with poppy seeds. I have summary the recipe as per below, but please check out at her blog for more detail steps. Thanks to Bee Bee for kind sharing of this lovely recipe.

Actually I was not followed exactly to the recipe as I overlooked the step, I thought the recipe required mashed potato, so I put the whole potato with skin on in the boiling water but did not realized I need to cut into small cubes, so what I got was potato skin water but not potato water, hahaha..Luckily the bagels still turned out well.

Poppy seeds Bagel




Poppy seeds Bagel
(printable recipe)
1 large russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
500ml water

2 and 1/2tsp instant yeast
30ml vegetable oil
2 large eggs, room temperature
650g all purpose plain flour
1.5 tsp salt

Egg wash
Poppy seeds for sprinkling

Method:
1. Cook the potatoes in the boiling water, once done, remove potato from water, reserve water and let it cook till lukewarm.
2. Add yeast, oil, eggs and 250ml lukewarm potato water (from no 1, not potato but water), lightly whisk till well combine.
3. Add in flour and salt, knead the mixture till well combine and elastic, took about 10mins.
4. Placed the dough in oiled bowl and cover with cloth and set aside to proof till doubles in volume, take about 1hour.
5. Punch out the air and separate dough into 6 equal portions. Roll round and cover to rest for another 10mins.
6. Roll each piece of dough into a rope shape, flatten one end of the rope, overlapping the flat end over the round end, pinch together to seal. Repeat for the rest of the dough.
7. Bring water to boil over high flame. Place few bagels in the water and simmer for 1min for each side.
8. Transfer the bagels on a baking tray line with parchment paper.
9. Brush egg wash and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
10. Bake at pre-heated oven at 200c for 25mins.

Soft and chewy bagels with a hint of seedy texture must be very much fun to eat!!

Jo said...

When I saw poppy seed, I immediately thought this can't be right! Then I remembered "heh you're not in Singapore - so poppy seeds are allowed", Bummer wish they allowed it here in Singapore so that I could use it for baking. Sorry for rambling ... btw the bagels look darn good!

I just started to like bagels about few months ago. They are available at bakery section in every supermarket here, a lot of choices. I never thought to buy one until my colleague let me tried one just toasted and spread with cream cheese, I immediately felt in love with it!! hahahaha....

Sonia, these look so perfect, I can't believe you made them yourself! Well done! Where I'm from, bagels are really popular with smoked salmon or with cream cheese, but your combination looks great too.
