Everyone in my family is really fond of Bagels and so i tried them but i think I failed on the first step itself, I should have done the yeast step again but I thought maybe it was because of the difference in brand and stuff. I used 1-1/2 powdered sugar, 2-1/2 active yeast and 1 cup water but it didn't get this foamy. I guess what I am asking is was it because the sugar was powered or was it because the yeast was less.....or ofcourse could it be because the water wasn't warm enough. I am not sure, but that one prolem led to another and the dough didn't rise, they didn't boil well and ultimately were all raw inside when taken out from the oven...even though the top layer did give me some hope :( please help!
I made it exactly according to your instructions and they turned out great!!..Thanks
Thanks for the feedback Sowmya :) --DK
Oh absolutely Ruthey! Once these bagels are done, slice them into half lengthwise into round disks. Spray with PAM or little melted butter - sprinkle garlic powder. Do the same on the other side and broil them until crisp. Cool them a bit and enjoy! I love these.....--DK
Thats indeed sad....but can you identify where exactly you went wrong? See the process steps - This is made with APF - did u remember to add salt? did it rise well? did you remember to rise it twice? Was it boiled properly and not too long? Check which step was different (from the process pictures), so that next time you can make sure it does not happen - these take effort and no one likes to see the effort going waste...I surely wish that it works out well for you next time....which am sure it will!--DK
