Makes 5 Doughs
180g bread flour
2g Suncore Foods® Rose Salt
2g instant yeast
1-4g Suncore Foods Premium Midori Jade Matcha, Aqua Blue Spirulina, Ebony Carrot, Velvet Red Beet, Canary Yellow Safflower Supercolor Powders for coloring
2 tsp Suncore Foods® Rose Salt for boiling bagels
1. Prep two large baking sheets with parchment paper lightly oiled.
2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl including powder for color. Knead by hand or mixer for 10 mins, or until dough is smooth and releases from the bowl. Transfer into a lightly greased clean bowl, cover, and let chill in fridge to slow down fermentation. Repeat until all desired colored doughs have been kneaded. Place them all back at room temp to let rise for 1.5-2hrs or until they double in size.
3. Punch down to degas doughs. Roll one dough into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Using a small spray bottle, mist water onto the dough. Repeat to each doughs and lay each one on top approx. the same length and size. Cover while rolling each dough to prevent dough stack from drying out.
4. Using a shark knife, slice approx. 1 inch of the stacked dough width-wise. Depending on what size bagels you desire, you can choose to split this in half. Twist dough strip to create a spiral. Grip one end of dough and wrap around your hand until it joins the other end. Using your palm faced down, cinch and seal the ends together by rolling it back and forth on the counter. Transfer to baking sheet. Repeat to all remaining dough. Cover bagels with cling wrap and kitchen towel, and let chill in fridge for min 4 hours or overnight.
5. Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F.
6. Bring pot of water to simmering boil about 2 inches/ 5cm deep. Add salt. Drop 2-3 bagels gently with a slotted spoon and boil each side for 30 secs. Remove and transfer back to baking sheet.
7. Bake bagels for 17-20 mins, depending on bagel size. Place onto wire rack immediately to cool. Enjoy with your favorite cream cheese or toppings!
