These weight watchers 2 ingredients bagels recipe is the need of the hour!! This no yeast 2 ingredients bread dough made using greek yogurt and self raising flour is so versatile can be used to make - pizzas, calzones, bagels.
Combine self-rising flour, yogurt and salt in a bowl.
Using a spatula mix them until everything comes together. Then switch over to using your clean hands to combine it into a dough. (Refer notes for additional tips).
Transfer to your worktop that has been dusted with flour and then divide into 4 equal parts. You can also choose to weigh it first before dividing. I just eyeballed them.
There are two ways in which you can shape them.
Take a portion of the dough and round it.
Poke your finger in the centre of the dough till you see it on the other side of the dough. Then using two fingers widen the gap to create a hole in the centre.
Place them on a baking tray lined with a parchment paper.
Roll each portion into long cylinders of around 11 inches in size.
Bring the edges together to form a circle and seal them well.
Place it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Brush the top of the bagels with some milk and sprinkle the toppings of your choice. I used white sesame seeds.
Bake them in a preheated oven of 200°C (392°F) for around 20-25 mins until the top gets a nice golden brown colour and the bottom sounds hollow.
Allow it to cool completely before slicing them horizontally and enjoying with a spread of cream cheese.
The recipe calls for self-rising flour and yogurt as the only 2 ingredients to make the dough. All the other ingredients are added to enhance the flavour quotient. So technically I understand that it more than 2 ingredients. However you can make the bagels using just flour and yogurt if you like.
If you are making homemade self-rising flour following the directions mentioned below then please do not add additional salt as the flour itself has some salt added to it.
Use greek yogurt or make your own hung curd to avoid the moisture content.
Do not knead the dough too much as the dough would tend to get stickier and you would end up adding more flour which would make the bagels dense once bagels.
Make the hole wider as the dough tends to rise in the oven filling the gaps.
The recipe can easily be halved or doubled.
Use the same measuring cup to measure both the flour and yogurt. Do not use the pyrex measuring cup to measure out yogurt.
