If you love Turkish food, you may hear about simit or Turkish bagel. A big ring shape bread covered with sesame seeds is one of the famous street food in Turkey.
You can check how to make homemade simit here and here.

And today I will share another Turkish delicacy; Açma or Turkish soft bagel. Yep.... this is a soft version of a Turkish bagel. If simit has crunch skin outside while chewy inside, this soft bagel version has a cotton-soft texture.

Usually, it is also sold together with simit and other traditional or nontraditional Turkish patisserie products.

Açma is generally made without filling, but during the processed butter applied over the dough before rolling it into a ring shape. That butter gives such a delicious and distinguished taste when you tear the bagel, it'll wire-like texture.

Even though mostly made wiıthout filling, there are some açma made with filling and we call it "poğaça".  The filling has wide various start from Olive, sausage, cheese, potato or minced meat.

Making this patisserie delicacy actually very simple and straightforward. For the butter layer, you must have very soft, but not melting butter ready. No egg is required for this recipe. Egg wash only require for brush the topping before sprinkling with sesame seeds. If you want to skip egg completely, you can use a mixture of 2 Tbsp molasses mixed with a half cup of water. Use this to brush the dough before sprinkling with sesame seeds.

Mix all liquid ingredients with sugar and yeast. Let it rest until it looks bubble. If you don't see any bubbles, don't bother to continue. It means your yeast is no longer active and you need to buy another one.

After you have your bubble liquid, you can add dry ingredients like flour and salt. Knead well until smooth and elastic. You can use an electric kneading machine or mixer or just use your strength and knead by hand. This dough is very friendly and easy to handle.

How to make:

1) Mix warm milk, water, vegetable oil, sugar, and yeast in a kneading bowl. Use a wire whisk to mix everything. Let it stand for about 10 minutes or until you see a bubble that confirms you have active yeast.

2) Add the flour and salt, and start to knead until becomes a smooth and elastic dough. When you push gently the dough with your finger, it will spring back. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest until it doubles in size. How long it takes would depend on your room temperature.

3) Deflate the dough and divide it into 8-10 portions. Round each part into a ball. 
Work one ball at a time, using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a long oval shape (see illustration pictures #4). 

4) Apply soft butter to the dough ( picture #5). Then roll up long side edges and shape like a long rope. You may roll it up againts the table and carefully strecth it to make it longer (see picture #6). Twist it to make it like a rope, attach two sides to each other and shape it like a big ring (picture #7). 

5) Move them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Do to all the dough. Loosely cover with a kitchen towel or plastic film and let it rest until noticeably puffy.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven at 180℃.

6) Brush the surface with egg wash (or molasses mixture) and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake into the preheated oven for about 17-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and place over a cooling rack.
Note: Time and temperature of baking it's only guidance, adjust to your own oven condition.

Enjoy. Afiyet olsun.

Açma / Turkish soft bagel | Çitra's Home Diary. #turkishfoodrecipe #açmatarifi #resepmasakanturki #simit #turkishbagel #softbread #softbagel #breakfast

Di Turki, selain simit, Açma juga salah satu makanan yang biasa dinikmati sebagai sarapan ataupun teman minum teh di siang hari. Bertekstur empuk seperti roti manis khas Indonesia.  Biasa dijual di toko-toko (patisserie) di waktu pagi sampai siang. Selain di toko patisserie, açma ini juga biasa dijajakan oleh penjual keliling atau digerobak pinggir jalan bersama dengan bagel khas Turki simit.

Nah, yang penasaran ingin coba juga hari ini saya ingin bagi salah satu resep untuk sarapan keluarga saya terutama di akhir minggu. Bisa juga untuk isian lunch box si kecil atau bekal piknik 🧺

Açma / Turkish soft bagel | Çitra's Home Diary. #turkishfoodrecipe #açmatarifi #resepmasakanturki #simit #turkishbagel #softbread #softbagel #breakfast

Cara membuat:

1) Dalam mangkok besar, campur susu hangat, air hangat, minyak sayur, gula dan ragi instant. Aduk rata dengan whisk. Diamkan kurang lebih 10 menit atau sampai berbusa. 
Note; jika tidak ada buih/ busanya berarti raginya tidak aktif lagi ya moms. Bisa beli ragi yang baru dan ulangi prosesnya.

2) Setelah campuran diatas terlihat berbusa (ragi aktif), masukkan terigu dan garam. Lalu uleni hingga kalis dan elastis. Proses pengulenan bisa menggunakan mikser listrik atau dengan tangan biasanya. Adonan dalam resep ini "bersahabat" banget kok moms, gak susah. Kalau dirasa adonan sudah kalis bisa stop pengulenan. Caranya, jika adonan dipencet ringan dengan jari, adonan akan membal balik (spring back). Tutup dengan plastik cling atau serbet lembab bersih dan diamkan sampai dobel volumenya. Lama proofingnya tergantung suhu dan kelembaban ruang masing-masing ya.

3) Kempiskan adonan dan uleni ringan saja dan bulatkan. Bagi adonan menjadi 8 sampai 10 bagian. Bulatkan lagi tiap bagian.
Ambil 1 bulatan lalu gilas dengan rolling pin berbentuk oval panjang (lihat gambar#4 diatas)

4) Oleskan mentega yang lembek ke permukaan adonan tersebut, oles yang rata ya (lihat gambar #5). Lalu gulung dari bagian yang panjang membentuk gulungan panjang. Roll lagi di meja kerja hingga gulungan menjadi lebih panjang (gambar #6). Lalu pelintir gulungan panjang tersebut dan rekatkan ujung-ujungnya hingga menyerupai tali tambang berbentuk cincin besar (gambar #7).

5) Susun diatas loyang baking beralas baking paper. Tutup dengan serbet lembab bersih dan diamkan hingga kurleb 30 menit. Sementara itu panaskan oven suhu 180℃.

6) Setelah açma terlihat mengembang (tapi jangan over proofing ya), olesi permukaannya dengan olesann telur (molasses) dan taburi dengan wijen. Panggang dalam oven yang sudah dipanaskan selama kurleb 17-20 menit atau sampai permukaannya keemasan matang.
Angkat dari oven dan susun dirak pendingin.
Note: Waktu dan suhu memanggang sesuaikan dengan kondisi oven masing-masing ya.

Afiyet olsun

  1. Wanted to make these, but the instructions for the recipe does not tell you when/where to add or what to do with the 1/2 glass of vegetable oil...????


    1. merhaba, hi..
      thank you for the comment, and yes I forget to write down the vegetable oil. It should be added at number 1 step together with all wet ingredients. I already corrected it. Hope you can try it soon and tell me how do you like it. 😊
