TUZLU SİMİT


SESAME RINGS

Ingredients:
  • 1 stick butter ( in room temperature )
  • 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup of plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp of vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp of salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • all purpose flour
topping:
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 cups of sesame seeds
Take butter, yogurt, vegetable oil, egg yolk, and vinegar in a large mixing bowl and whisk it well. Add baking soda, salt. Add flour slowly (to make very soft dough ) and start to knead.
Stop adding flour when you reach soft consistency.
Preheat the oven 350F. Place a parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Take small parts ( about the size of a half walnut ) from the dough and give them the shape of ring (about 2 inch diameter).
Take the egg white and sesame seeds in a separate bowls.
Dip the rings first into egg white and then dip them into sesame seeds.
Place the rings on the baking sheet.
Bake them until the rings are just golden brown.

Merhabalar,
Geçen haftaki kek deneyimim yüzünden bir daha fırını kullanmaya korkuyordum ama bu simitler harika görünüyordu. Kekimi yaparken bake ayarını kullandım ama bu sefer de üstü pişmedi. Simitlerde de biraz broil ayarını kullanayım üstü pişsin dedim,tadı yerinde ama birazcık yandılar:)Bake-broil kafamı karıştırıyor ne yapmam lazım acaba?
Teşekkürler

Merhaba Chikileta,
Once tesekkurler.
Kek yapmak biraz sabir isteyen birsey bence; ben de defalarca kotu tecrubeler yasadim:)
350F'ta, bake ayarinda, ortalama 45-60 dakika,sabirla pismesini beklemek lazim, pisirirken firinin orta izgarasina yerlestirmek lazim ayrica.Ben mumkun oldugunca firinin kapagini da acmamaya calisiyorum.
Broil ayarini da sadece et-tavuk pisirirken ve firinda patates kizartirken kullaniyorum.
Umarim yardimi olur.

Just out of curiosity, why are they called tuzlu simit? it reminds me of the city so much of my family is from, tuzla in Bosnia. Ottoman connection maybe? Looks delicious btw! love the blog!

Hi Maja,
Tuzlu means salty. We also call bagel shaped pastry, simit.
There is a place in Istanbul called Tuzla too. We always have connection which I really like with Bosnian.
Thanks,
Iffet

How much flour?

My Turkish Kitchen said...

Hi Anonymous,
I really didn't measure the amount of flour. I add flour gradually and when I reach to a soft consistency I just stop adding it. The dough should be soft but not sticky.

Hi Maja, Tuz means salt in Turkish as Turkish kitchen says in her reply. There's a salt lake in your city in Bosnia, no? And there were marshes near the city of Tuzla near Istanbul where salt used to be collected but has now become too polluted. So there's the conection. It's nice to see people from all over the Balkans and Turkey connect. Niko
