Matcha Bagels

matcha bagels

Bagels…love it. Even though took a long time to make it, it’s always better taste if you made it by your self. My first bagel bites was in USA last january, we’ve bought it in a bagel store that sold many sorts of bagels, a little difficult to choose which one is the best. Since bagels is not so popular in Germany as in USA, I always made bagels by myself.

Basically the instruction to make this bagel is the same way like sesame bagel recipe that I’ve been posted. I just mixed the mixture of green tea Matcha powder with water and mixed it with the dough. Sprinkle the Matcha bagels with sesame seeds on top after boiling before baking, yummy.
