The Simit , an original bread Turkish , will be found at every street corner in Turkey, it is in the form of crown and covered with sesame seed after being dipped in grape molasses, but I don ‘ didn’t have one and I don’t know what to replace it with, I think the taste will completely change the Simit.
There are different versions of Simit with or without eggs, with or without butter, if we base ourselves on the recipes without eggs and butter we will get crispy simit when they are still fresh otherwise they will harden, so it is better to consume them fresh , the second version and the fluffy bread with egg and margarine, hence the following recipe.
Prepare the simit bread dough
First of all, dilute the yeast by adding a little powdered sugar to it in lukewarm water and leave to swell for 10 minutes.
Then, sift the flour, dig a fountain in it and add the sugar, salt, yeast, milk, egg and margarine.
Knead the dough well for ten minutes. Cut it into small balls the size of an orange.
Leave to rise for 1 hour 30 minutes under a clean cloth.
