  • Step 1.

    Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic.

    Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it, and let it rise for 1 hour.

    Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and shape each one into a ball. Make a hole in the center of each ball with your thumb.
  • Step 6.

    Boil the bagels in water with baking soda for 1 minute on each side.
