Simit is a Turkish style bagel also know as a Greek koulouri. Delicious sesame-bathed bread rings, crisp on the outside and little chewy in side. Quite easy to make, and can be very addictive.
It takes about four hours to make Simit bagels. You can prepare the dough the night before, letting it rest in the fridge overnight and bake the bagels in the morning, just in time for breakfast. Long rising gives the bagels nicer chewer texture. You can freeze the baked ones and warm them up in the hot oven anytime you feel like having fresh, delicious Simit.
