  • 1 cup - lukewarm water
  • 1 packet - active Dry yeast (approx. 2.5 tsp)
  • 1.5 tbsp - Sugar
  • 2.5-3 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp - salt
  • 1 tsp - vegetable oil
  • Toppings (optional)
  • 1 tbsp - sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp - Poppy Seeds
  • Few spoons of roasted Onions
  • How to Make New York Style Bagels:

    1. Combine the water, yeast, and sugar in the bowl. Let it stand until foamy - about 5 minutes.
    2. Gradually add the flour, a few spoons at a time and the salt, and mix until the mixture comes together with a wooden spoon (hands preferable). It should be a stiff dough.
    3. Turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and no longer sticky, about 5 minutes, adding just as much flour as needed.
    4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat with little oil.
    5. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, approx. 1 hour.
    6. Remove from the bowl and punch down the dough. Divide into 6 equal pieces. Roll into a circle, using your finger poke a hole in the middle.
    7. Place on a lightly greased surface, covered with a clean cloth, and let rest until raised a tad - about 20 to 30 minutes.
    8. Bring a large skillet of water to a boil. Add about 1 tbsp of sugar to the water.
    9. Drop the bagels into them for about 45 second to a minute, turning them in the middle.
    10. Remove and lay them on a greased baking sheet.
    11. Use any topping you like at this time.
    12. Bake for about 5-10 minutes in a preheated 400 degrees F oven until golden/crusty on the surface.
