Bagel.....anyone?

Janet and I did a barter system few days ago, her bagel in exchange of the "ayam masak lemak cili padi". The bagel came with strict instruction to heat them up in oven (i had to heat them instead in a non stick pan, since "owning an oven" is still my unfulfilled wish list wakakakakak!).
Dinner last night was this bagel and green tea (to add "healthy" element to diet). OMG! the bagel was delicious with a capital D! I didn't expect them to taste that good. The exterior skin (hmmmmm..not a very appropriate term for food kan), quite crispy, and when u chew them, the texture was solid, something like the Chinese Cha Kui. I had it with cream cheese and pineapple chunks(a must for Whimsy) filling.
Seriously people, the taste was wayyyyyy above my expectation. Janet said the original bagel from New York is 100x better than this, but as of today 8th July 2008, this Janet's bagel is the best!

Hahaha Shabbymom, I baru ja joined the 21st century. All this while I was in Stone Age!! Nantilah when my kids are older and I have more time. Hehehe..I got the bagel recipe from the internet. To forward or cut and paste or email the thing to you pun I ndak pandai...sedihkan...Nanti i suruh hubby email to u ah! But I must warn you, bagels ni kan...susah mau dapat the right texture. I've sworn off baking bagels again coz indak ja perfect! Photogenic Whimsy's fotokan! Me likey the tikuan!

Poppet said...

whimsi.. you tidak pernah makan bagel yg janet's hb buatkah? bukan dulu we pernah help him buat di rumah dia dulu tu kah? or was it me and janet ja?
Iya.. yg leceh tu mo kena boil lagi.. sia pun fikir banyak mo buat... pernah buat sekali tolong janet's hb hehehe... but I like the recipe with raisins tu.. because I like raisin mengkali..
Yup janet patut ada blog and give recipes... because she is a great cook ( well she comes from a family yg pandai2 masak semua) the problem with janet's recipes are.. semua ingredients main estimate and ikut rasa... susah mo follow bah Net..

I just read the comments. I thought the bagels kena beli from somewhere, rupanya fresh from the oven... Cool-eh?

whimsical said...

mcm complex jugak nak buat bagel kan.. hv to dunk it in water pulak..I hv not tried it yet. Pandai betul la si Janet.

Janet said...

Ish..ish...you all...buat I segan2 pulak with the pujian2. Nanti2 i buat next time and you all rasa...takut anti climax pulak. Nanti ada orang komplen "Gitukah rasa bagel???!!!" But I try to be positive. Hopefully panjang umur, I can bake extra batch untuk peminat2. Yai!!! Hahaha...Thanks for the kind words!
